The Basil and Becky Educational Foundation shares the stories of our ancestors with our children and generations to come. Watch the trailers of Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II and Choc’late Soldiers from the USA.
Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II
Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II features elegant ladies, now in their 80s and 90s, who represent the 600,000 Black women who fled lives as domestics and sharecroppers to work in factories and governments offices. They were the first! Affectionately known during the war as “Rosie the Riveters,” our Warriors triumphed over racism at home, Nazism abroad, and sexism everywhere. They opened doors of opportunity for future generations of working women in America.
Choc’late Soldiers from the USA
Choc’late Soldiers from the USA (CSUSA) recounts how 140,000 African American soldiers – men and women – formed an unexpected, but everlasting bond with white British civilians during World War II. CSUSA was honored with the Congressional Black Caucus, Veterans Braintrust Award, and won medals at the Bakersfield and Indie Film Festivals in 2013.
