African-American soldiers reflect on the Normandy Invasion that took place on June 6, 1944. One veteran emotionally reacts to the cemetery that honors the Americans who fought on Omaha Beach at Pointe du Hoc hill. Allen Price describes being part of the 32 75th Quartermaster Company on D-Day: “Blood all over the place…You had nightmares. When I first came home, I had nightmares.” Price mentions how little Hollywood and other American cultural outlets have failed to highlight the brave service of African-American soldiers during the invasion of Normandy and World War II.
These interviews were conducted by makers of the 2008 Emmy-nominated documentary, “A Distant Shore: African Americans of D-Day,” produced by the History Channel.
