He was drafted into the Army Air Corp in 1945 during WWII and was stationed in the Philippines. He returned to an America hostile to his very existence. He relocated from Minden, Louisiana to Dayton, Ohio; hoping to leave segregation behind for a more progressive way of life. Little did he know, Dayton was just has segregated as his hometown and separate-and-unequal was the status quo for Black Americans.
