Black Soldiers of the 92nd Infantry Division in Italy with Professor Robert Jefferson.
The 92nd Infantry (“Buffalo”) Division was the last segregated (all-black) U.S. Army division and the only black division to fight in World War II in Europe. Many of the references to the division in earlier histories reflected generally unfavorable evaluations on their performance in battle. Professor Jefferson’s talk will review his analysis of numerous records and interviews and will be framing the experiences of the 92nd Infantry Division in the context of their encounters with Italian partisans.
