Fighting for the Right to Fight

Fighting for the Right to Fight

Fighting for the Right to Fight shares the personal and group experiences of African American men and women during WWII. Many African Americans fought on foreign battlefields, worked in factories on the home front, and made innumerable sacrifices in the effort to free others from the tyranny of the Axis powers – even as they were denied personal freedoms in the United States. The exhibition examines social changes brought about by the events of WWII, and connects African Americans’ efforts during the war to the burgeoning Civil Rights Movement. A particularly impactful aspect of the exhibit is the focus on the stories of seven African American Medal of Honor recipients from WWII. The exhibit also includes an eight-minute video on the Tuskegee Airmen.  Please note In conjunction with Fighting for the Right to Fight and Black History Month, MOT will be hosting a Family Sunday on February 16, 2020. Activities include:

  • Discovery activity to explore the Fighting for the Right to Fight exhibition (12 p.m.- 5 p.m.)
  • Creating Art through Unity – A Human Element Project: What does the American flag mean to you? (1 p.m. – 3 p.m.)
  • Interactive webcast - Student reporters invite us to examine artifacts and explore important WWII US memorials to understand African American experiences in WWII (2:30 p.m.- 3:20 p.m.)
  • Uplifting soul music to celebrate Black History Month with the band, Tough Love and the #loverevolution (3:30 p.m.- 4:30 p.m.)
