African Americans were among the first citizens to protest Truman’s decision to use nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, a fact rarely mentioned by historians. Blacks in America saw the use of atomic bombs as a racial issue from the beginning of the nuclear age.

 

Author Vincent Intondi reveals the links between the black freedom movement in America and issues of global peace. Intondi will share stories from civil rights leaders, artists, clergy and politicians, “from Langston Hughes, through Lorraine Hansberry to President Obama.”
