    Episode 17-369th Infantry Regiment Overview

    Episode 17-369th Infantry Regiment Overview

    The hiatus of the Black Valor podcast is over!  This episode marks the beginning of a new series commemorating the 369th Infantry Regiment and 100 year anniversary of WWI. Also, I discuss some of the reasons for the long delay and why this podcast is more relevant than ever, with the current racial climate in America.  
    Consider Episode 17 the first of four or five podcasts that focus on aspects of the 369th's WWI legacy.  Episode 18 will arrive in two weeks and cover the politics that led to the formation of the regiment and the famous 369th band.
    If you are an old listener, thank you for your patience and I promise to reward your diligence with fresh new content.  For new listeners, welcome and I recommend listening to the older podcasts while you wait for the new episode.
