An Essay Toward a History of the Black Man in the Great War (June 1919) by W.E. Burghardt DuBois

"Fresh back from an investigative trip to Europe, editor of the monthly magazine of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), W.E.B. DuBois, outlines the history of black soldiers in World War I, both the 280,000 Senegalese who fought for France at the Marne, 30,000 Congolese fighting for the Belgians, as well as the 200,000 American blacks with the American Expeditionary Force in Europe."
