From Omaha Beach to confrontations with the German Military, William Morris assisted in the Allied defeat of the Nazis, even as he experienced racism. These experiences were recently published in a children’s book by Dolores Morris, his daughter,
The Soldier That Wagged Her Tail: A Black Veteran’s Story World War II. Both father and daughter will answer questions about these experiences. William Morris Jr. was awarded the Albert V. Maniscalco Community Service Award from Borough President James Oddo for his military service in WWII, leadership at the Port Richmond Food Pantry and education of youth. Morris attended Wagner College briefly.
