Denton Brooks was African American War correspondent during World War 2. He was one of 30 African American correspondents during the war. Mr. Brooks worked for the Chicago Defender a great African American newspaper. His job was to report on treatment of black soldiers amid the segregated units of the US army.
Mr. Brooks wrote about how blacks were treated on military bases. Once a pool on a base would not let black soldiers swim in the pool. Mr. Brooks tried submit his story to people on the base but a military sensor tried to stop him from making his report. Mr Brooks was forced to tell his story to the people at the Defender on how black soldiers risking their lives for their country but could not swim in a pool on a military base. After the story was published the pool was integrated.
Mr Brooks later was imbedded with an African American unit in China. The soldiers helped construct a road to China from India .

Taking a tour around DC is not without it challenges. The good part is there is hardly tourists in the city . You almost have every tour site to yourself. The museum of African American History and Culture is just about empty of people. Come down to the monuments and memorials. Make sure to wear your mask
I made a visit to the African American Civil War Museum today. I had a chance to take a look at the new statue of Abrham Lincoln. The statue depicts Lincoln signing the Emancipation Proclamation. This statue will be in front of the new Museum of African American Civil War Memorial.
KB Tours will be restarting when the Museum of African American History and Culture opens up. We are hopeful the museum will open up in September or before.
We will be conducting our tours with your safety and safety in mind . We have come up with a very unique way of doing a great African American tour of the city . The new tour you will be getting all the great facts and information on that we give on our four hour tour. When the time comes will announce our way of doing the tour.
Our new tour will be at a lower price and you still will get a ticket to the museum of African American History and Culture.
We will be making an announcement in July what dates we will be doing the tours and the capacity of each tour￼.
The first 22 men of color to hold office in Congress were Republicans￼. The first African American to be elected to a full term senate was Blanche Kelso Bruce.
Some of these men could not get newspapers to write articles about them so they either started their own newspapers or bought a newspaper. Some even bought a railroad
Better days are coming. KB Tours hopes you and you love ones are safe and healthy. One day we will see all of you in DC one day.
