Professor Gregory Cooke, historian, documentarian and filmmaker tells amazing stories of Black Rosies.   Cooke shares highlights from his newly completed documentary Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II.  He celebrates the triumph over the double stigma of being black and female for 600,000 Black women, whose stories are part of American history, but have been hidden treasures. 

We hear the unforgettable stories  of Rosies from Camden, New Jersey, Baltimore, MD and Philadelphia, PA among others.  We learn of the strength they gathered from growing up in the Great Depression, the fortitude and courage they mastered to deal with racism and sexism during the World War II period, and the catalyst of their lives as a Civil Rights era marker. Cooke shares the real deal on how the Rosie the Riveter character really come to be.
