From Ft. McArthur, California to Rome, Italy

With One Tied Hand - The Buffalo Soldiers of World War II by Joe and Dayle Hartnett, Director & Producer of With One Tied Hand

Episode notes

Ivan J. Houston joins the Army in 1944, and from the moment of his arrival at Ft. MacArthur, San Pedro, California he is Segregated into the Negro (or Colored) sections of the U.S. Army. On his way East for training and deployment overseas, he increasingly encounters the overt Racism of America prevalent during that time...a "WHITE ONLY" drinking fountain, which was much newer, cleaner, and taller than the "COLORED" drinking fountain.
