Designing Women S2 E9 - Look, This is America, You Big Palooka
Charlene’s psychic didn’t see Colonel Bill Stillfield coming. That’s OK, we didn’t see this 1940s “fever dream” musical coming, so… hope you’re up to date on your WWII-era history and references! (A quick primer: America, good. HItler, bad. Rations were a thing.) And we’ll dig into one big, little reference, the Hollywood Canteen, in "Salina’s Sidebar."
Stick around for this week’s "Extra Sugar" where we take a closer look at the role and experiences of African Americans in WWII.
Check out these reads:
Black Americans Who Served in WWII Faced Segregation Abroad and at Home
African-American GIs of WWII: Fighting for democracy abroad and at home
Come on, let’s get into it!
