"Honor Deferred" has been a favorite on the History Channel for a few years now, commonly shown during Black History Month (February) and during the annual D-Day remembrance celebrations. It is around 45 minutes in length and can be viewed for free online or on television in February and June, and is likewise available in libraries and media stores.

This program focuses on seven African American soldiers of World War II who were finally recognized for their bravery in 1997, when they were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Six of the seven awards were given posthumously; only Vernon Baker was still living. Produced by Al Roker and narrated by Samuel Jackson, this video is top-notch. Each fighting man is given his own high-quality reenactment. Get the tissues ready, because we suspect that these stories will touch your heart and inspire you.

Our five-page booklet is designed to accompany a viewing of this program. It includes a word search "pre-viewing" activity, to introduce some of the vocabulary. The "viewing" activity involves taking notes on each soldier that is covered (listed in chronological order). The "post-viewing" activity involves three critical thinking essay questions.
