On a frigid night during World War II’s Battle of the Bulge, Black American soldiers seek refuge in the bombed ruins of a church. Not only are they confronted by the enemy, but they also face conflicts in their own ranks when they discover gold in the cellar. Jehovah’s Gold tells a story of Black soldiers fighting Fascism abroad, while also battling racism in the military and at home. 

The Spotlight Reading Series is made possible in part by a grant from
