About this Event

Amidst the horrors and indignities of Jim Crow America, one million African Americans served their country to protect democracy abroad and expand it at home during World War II. The new documentary tells the story of a unit struggling to succeed in battle, proving their full-citizenship when their lives seemed to matter less. "Serving for Justice: The Story of the 333rd Field Artillery Battalion" is a story of fortitude, brotherhood, and faith in America's ideals.

The film's award-winning director and writer, Robert Child, has produced nine U.S. military history films - all of which focus on the untold stories of heroism by soldiers who have never been recognized in American History, and in many cases, by the United States Government. This film was created by Robert Child and produced by Ebony Doughboys Productions, Inc., to honor these men at a special ceremony which was scheduled to be held in 2020, honoring the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII. While the pandemic forced the physical ceremonies to be cancelled, the film was still produced and has premiered to 5-star reviews in November, 2020.

Following the 50-minute film, Child will discuss the making of the documentary, answer any questions from the audience and introduce the film's producer, Arthur Collins Jr. Collins leads a local nonprofit organization called the 5th Platoon, a group of military historians/re-enactors who are passionate in the pursuit and the preservation of WW2 African American military history. The 5th Platoon re-enactors are based in close proximity to Bucks County, in NJ, and have re-enacted many battles at events and in films to honor those brave African American soldiers who fought in WWII.

Distinguished Historian Review on Serving for Justice

The reviews have started to come in from distinguished military historians and others on Serving for Justice. The film continues to receive rave reviews on Amazon as well. As of this writing there are thirty (30) 5-star reviews on the title on Amazon Prime.


I wanted to share one of the distinguished historian reviews we have received. It is from US Army Colonel (Ret.) Robert Scherer Historian of the 12th Armored Division Association. We are honored he has shared his thoughts and kind words with us on the film. His review is below.


"Serving for Justice tells a story that needs to be told, and it is told well. The research that went into producing this film and the skill with which it was done are laudable. The initial ten minutes provides an excellent, albeit short history of the black experience up to WWII. I hope the producers will devote an entire movie to that experience in the future. The history of the men who enlisted or were inducted, trained, deployed, and fought in the 333rd Field Artillery Battalion is an American story that could be told of any of the 16 million personnel who wore our uniform in WWII. The fact that these men and others like them who happened to be African-American operated under a continual cloud of racism and yet performed just like any other American Soldier, some very good and some not as good, is what is remarkable. As the colloquialism says, they went into the fight with one hand tied behind their backs. The key part is they went into the fight! The producers have done an amazing job telling the story of the unit up to and including its participation in the Battle of the Bulge and the war crimes committed on the men we now know as the Wereth Eleven. The end story of the ultimate acknowledgement of the crime and the memorial erected and dedicated in their honor and memory is critical to our history. I highly recommend this film. It is historically accurate to my knowledge and very well done."
