Studs Terkel Interviews Lowell Steward and Colonel Edward Gleed
Studs Terkel interviews two African American men, Lowell Stewart and Colonel Edward Gleed, on the subject of World War II. Stewart talks about discrimination he faced around the time when he joined the military in 1942, and throughout his time in the service. Gleed talks about his own experiences with discrimination and segregation, in athletics and other aspects of his life. The discussion turns back to the creation of an entirely seperate, all African American squadron of the air force, which both Stewart and Gleed served in.
