This project was announced in 2004, but I just found out about it — Morgan freeman and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are co-producing a script by Gregory Allen Howard about the black segregated 761st tank battalion in combat in Europe at the end of World War II. They were the original Black Panthers.I doubt that it will be made as nothing has been heard since 2004, but anything can happen in Hollywood.
The New York Military Affairs Symposium will be having lectures throughout the Fall on military history. Visit nymas.org for more information!
Ari Beser has been to Japan before to learn about the Japanese perspective, but he needs your help to go again. In 2011 Ari received a grant through his university and went to Japan to explore the history of World War II from their side.
