Court-Martial at Fort Devens by Jeffrey Sweet

Synopsis: When a group of young black women join the Women’s Army Corps during WWII, they’re promised training as medical technicians. But a racist Colonel at Fort Devens has other ideas, and demotes them to cleaning duty. The battle of wills leads to a confrontation in which the colonel makes comments so offensive that the WAC’s pull an immediate strike. Though a visiting general is able to compel most of the women to go back to work, two refuse and are held for trial. Defended by a civilian lawyer who’s never tried a court-martial, they embark on an uphill fight to change the status quo. Based on a true story, this gripping and inspiring drama explores the complexities of standing up for one’s rights.
