Bernard Harris, doctoral student in Adult Learning and Leadership, conducted an in-studio interview with KCUR Kansas City Public Radio on June 20, 2018. He was discussing his dissertation topic about the education and training of African American officer cadets at the infantry and medical Officer Training Camps at Fort Des Moines, Iowa in 1917 prior to overseas deployment to France for World War I. His interview was the result of an article he wrote for a K-State class being published by the Annals of Iowa Journal, State Historical Society of Iowa and a precursor for a free presentation to the public which was on June 24, 2018 at the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City on the same topic.
Segment 2, beginning at 36:50: The role of African-Americans in World War I.
