This continued segregation throughout the war served only to transform black soldier’s attitudes; they would use the ‘Double V’ sign to show they were fighting for two victories: victory overseas and victory over racism at home. But it was their exposure to un-segregated European societies that really changed them, seeing that it was in fact possible to achieve what they hoped, and to further affirm the injustice of their own society.
