Entangled by White Supremacy

February 21, 1919, marked an important date in the history of Columbia as a multitude of people gathered on the downtown streets to witness the parade that honored the sacrifices made and the bravery exhibited by the 371st—a regiment that was made up mostly of people from South Carolina. One of the notable characteristics of this event is that the parade was made to give honor to mostly African American soldiers in spite of how the area was at that time characterized with white supremacy. As the African Americans comprised most of those gathered along the streets, the whites attended as curiosity seekers who watched through doorways and windows. In contrast with most military units that relegated the black soldiers, the 371st served as a combat infantry regiment and all-black division.
