“Black Uniform” Documentary now available on Amazon

 

Award-Winning Documentary, “Black Uniform” Highlighting Black Men
and Women Who Served in the U.S. Military, now available on Amazon

After playing in more than 25 film festivals, “Black Uniform,” an award-winning documentary featuring the voices of 12 Black veterans who served within the ranges of WWII to present day (including now 104-year-old Romay Davis who served in the only female Black battalion sent overseas during WWII, the 6888; Tuskegee Airman, Dr. Eugene Richardson; decorated Vietnam War veteran Congressman Charles Rangle; and the first African American female Army Ranger, Janina Simmons, among others) was released on Amazon this week.

These servicemembers speak on why they enlisted and what they’ve given to their country. This important film shares their open and heartfelt perspectives on what it felt like to be on the proverbial front lines as a Black man or woman in the U.S. military – including during segregated service; the draft; the nation’s shifting views on those who serve; and the additional challenges faced by women who enlist.

The film won several awards, including Best Documentary at the Los Angeles Documentary Film Festival, the Orlando Urban Film Festival and Diamond State Black Film Festival, as well as Best Historical Documentary at the Manhattan Film Festival.

“Black Uniform” was produced and directed by entertainment attorney Robert Darwell whose previous film, the award-winning “The 90s Club” (sharing stories from 12 diverse individuals between the ages of 90- to 99- years-old, including Dick Van Dyke and Civil Rights attorney Fred Gray) is also available via Amazon.

Independently produced, but meaningful, films like “Black Uniform” really need the attention and support of organizations like yours. We greatly appreciate it if you would help spread the word about the movie (link to Amazon poster above). One recent review says, “the film highlights the diversity of experience and illustrates how far things have come, although it is also an example of the adage, ‘the more things change, the more they remain the same.’ Darwell has done an excellent job of bringing these stories to life and allowing you, the viewer, to draw your own conclusions. This is engrossing and fulfilling cinema at its best.”
