The Blackman Who Reads Aloud Salutes “The Lost Eleven”

The Blackman Who Reads Aloud reads excerpts from the book “The Lost Eleven” as he looks back 74 years to December 17, 1944, when eleven brave heroes were savagely murdered by German stormtroopers in a cow pasture in Wereth, Belgium. I ask that you close your eyes as you envision the brutality inflicted​ on these eleven black soldiers. Soldiers who mind you were fighting to secure democracy for a country that didn’t recognize them as citizens. I will read Chapters 81-82 and the part of the Epilogue​.
