My Buddy: The WWII 369th Documentary Project: Mission

MISSION

The WWII 369th Documentary Project cinematically chronicles the untold story of lifelong friendship and camaraderie among men who served in a segregated unit during WWII. The documentary focuses on the voices and experiences of men who served as part of the 369th regiment in Harlem whose geographic background and military service allowed them to resist oppression and build community with respect, dignity, and pride. The documentary is framed by the larger history of Black resistance to show how factors outside of individuals greatly shape their lifelong bonds that impact both local and global communities.
