What does military service and veteran status mean to Black American veterans? Few full-length novels, short-story collections, plays, poetry volumes, memoirs, or non-fiction studies by or about Black American soldiers in the 21st-century have been published to answer the question.

Peter Molin, Rutgers University Assistant Teaching Professor and Assistant Director of the Writing Program, will share and discuss examples of this writing that he has found in his research.
