7-17-15 Mutiny? Really? in 2:00

I'm behind on history and playing catch up.


July 17, 2015
On this day in Labor History the year was 1944. A crew of mostly black soldiers were loading munitions onto ships at the Port Chicago Naval Magazine in California, northeast of Oakland. 320 soldiers were killed by a munitions explosion that wounded another 390 people.

2:00 minute at audio.
