History Department Presents Speaker: WWII Veteran William Morris

February 24 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

The History Department is hosting guest speaker and WWII veteran William Morris.

His daughter, Delores N. Morris, wrote the book "The Soldier Who Wagged Her Tail: A Black Veteran's Story of WWII" as a recounting of his experiences during WWII and a tribute to his dog who saved his life during battle.

According to the author, "this book traces his journey from his close-knit neighborhood in Staten Island to the frozen battlefields of Europe, then back home to an Army camp in Georgia that other soldiers have described as a “concentration camp for black troops."
