Black Quotidian: Everyday History in African-American Newspapers

July 1, 1944

On July 1, 1944, the Cleveland Call and Post featured Annie Booker (of 2369 East 57th Street), a mother who had three sons serving in the Army. Robert James Moore (thirty-one years old) was with the  Quartermaster Trucking Company in Italy; Phillip James Moore (twenty-nine years old) was a private stationed in England; and Corporal Sylvester Moore (thirty-three years old) was serving with an engineering unit somewhere in the South Pacific. “You’re proud of your boys we know, Mrs. Booker...We're proud of them too,” the Call and Post reporter Valena Minor wrote. “May they all come marching home when the world knows the peace of true democracy once again.“
