This one hour and a half documentary is our second documentary focusing on African-American Women during World War II. The purpose of this documentary, Sweet Georgia Brown: Impact, Courage, Sacrifice and Will is to examine the consequences or changes in race and gender policies for the status of African-American Women in the military during World War II. During this era, opportunities for women in the military expanded, such as; what social, political and organization factors influenced change in racial and gender policies in the military during World War II; what were the unique factors associated with being African-American Women in the Armed Services at that time and how did this experience affects their lives.
