50 Years Ago This Week: Vietnam and the Black Soldier

50 Years Ago This Week: Vietnam and the Black Soldier
- In the wake of Muhammad Ali's very public refusal to fight in Vietnam, TIME's cover story took an in-depth look at the often paradoxical situation facing the African-American population in relation to the War in Vietnam. The story doesn't escape without a few assumptions about race and gender issues in the U.S. that likely wouldn't fly today (for example, the suggestion that black men wanted to fight in Vietnam as a "corrective" to the "matriarchal dominance" in their society at home), and it's very easy to read it as taking a side — against protest — but it does a good job of presenting the many nuanced sides of a complicated issue.
