“The Women of Six Triple Eight” – TPR’s In Focus – Mar. 18, 2021

In honor of Women’s History Month, we honor the service of the 855 African American women of the U.S. Army’s Six Triple Eight Central Postal Directory Battalion, who processed 17 million pieces of mail in 3 months in England and France, for soldiers fighting in Europe. Colonel Edna Cummings (U.S. Army Ret.) and filmmaker Jim Theres talk with In Focus host Carolyn Hutcheson about the story. The documentary film will be presented by the Troy University Rosa Parks Museum on March 24.
