For the Love of Liberty - The Story of America's Black Patriots (US Army)

Forum One Communications Portfolio

Forum One Communications designed and developed the "For Love of Liberty" web site for the U.S. Army to honor the hard work and sacrifices that African American servicemen and servicewomen have made on behalf of the United States. The web site, developed in partnership with Summit Marketing, can be found at http://www.ForLoveofLiberty.net.

From The Revolutionary War through the War on Terrorism, students, educators, and veterans can experience the life of African American soldiers through contemporary and archival stories, photos, and videos. Veterans and their families are invited to share their own stories, a selection of which will be featured alongside the site's existing content.

The launch corresponds with the upcoming release of a PBS documentary sponsored by the U.S. Army: "For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots," which will premiere during Black History Month. The documentary is hosted by Halle Berry and includes an introduction by Colin Powell. It features dramatic readings by Bill Cosby, Ossie Davis, Robert Duvall.

In addition to rich, interactive on-site content, the site provides downloadable educational materials, including classroom discussion guides developed by two accomplished curricula creators, Marcy Johnson, Ph.D and Jewell Winn, Ed.D. Presented in the For Educators section of the site, the materials will help high school and college educators bring the PBS documentary into their classrooms.
