A century ago, the “Great War” began in Europe. World War I would ultimately claim 14 million lives over four years, including 499 soldiers from the D.C. region. As centennial celebrations begin around the world, one local historian is pushing to recognize the largely forgotten African — and African American — soldiers who had pivotal roles in both the beginning of the conflict and its final battle. Kojo explores the unique history of blacks during the war, and honors the Christmas Truce, a historic ceasefire which occurred 100 years ago this week.
