Joseph Ward is interviewing Dr. Gerri Seay about the African American contribution to the building of the Ledo Road. During WWII the Ledo Road was built by 6,000 men, 65% of the men building the road were African American soldiers. The road was 1079 miles long and served as a supply route to China. Join us as Dr, Seay breaks down the history of the Ledo Road, how black soldiers were the driving force behind the building of the road, and how the African American contribution was forgotten.
