New Book “Sweet Georgia Brown: Impact, Courage, Sacrifice, and Will” Is a Chronicle of the Military Achievements of Black Women During World War II

Lawrence E. Walker is a native of New Jersey, president and CEO of, an online social search engine and media network focusing on American History and around the World, and recipient of the Army Person of the Year award in 1997 for his groundbreaking research on the history of black women who served during World War II. He has completed his book “Sweet Georgia Brown: Impact, Courage, Sacrifice, and Will”: an inspiring work the celebrates the lives, accomplishments, and perseverance of black American women who served their nation during the Second World War despite significant endemic racial and gender discrimination.

Walker writes, “Charity Adams Earley, commander of the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion in World War II, summarized the history of women in the military when she wrote in 1989: ‘The future of women in the military seems assured... What may be lost in time is the story of how it happened. The barriers of sex and race were, and sometimes still are, very difficult to overcome, the second even more than the first. During World War II women in the service were often subject to ridicule and disrespect even as they performed satisfactorily... Each year the number of people who shared the stress of these accomplishments lessens. In another generation young black women who join the military will have scant record of their predecessors who fought on the two fronts of discrimination segregation and reluctant acceptance by males.’”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lawrence E. Walker’s book is a fascinating record of the intersection of African-American, women’s, and modern military history in the United States.
