With the war against Nazi Germany going on, an Afro-American minister
(Carlton Moss) addresses the injustices of the Germans against the black
race during services. He even quotes from Hitler's Mein Kampf to
make his point. In contrast, he praises the USA as a land of equal
opportunities, recounts historical events with black participation, and
finally depicts military training and the opportunities for black men (and
women) in armed services - because after all, this is a recruitment film.
a documentary point of view, this film is of course a load of bullshit, as
in the 1940's, the USA was far from being a country of equal opportunities
(and some say it isn't even nowadays) - but then of course this isn't a
documentary at all (even if it pretends to be) but a 40+ minute
advertisment for service in the armed forces. As such, it's a little bit
blunter than it could have been, and of course also a tad hypocritical
from today's point of view, but then again, it might be more important as
a historical document than a work of cinematic art anyways.
