American infantrymen advancing toward the front in the Argonne along a screened highway during World War I.

During World War I, thousands of African American men answered their country's call and joined the armed services. Though segregation policies at the time forced 80% of African American servicemen into labor or support roles, the 92nd and 93rd Infantry Divisions saw fierce combat in Europe.
