Part one of two. At the height of the Vietnam War, as black America was campaigning for civil rights, Motown put out an LP of recordings of African American soldiers talking about their time in Vietnam called Guess Who's Coming Home. The interviews were recorded by Wallace Terry, who found the soldiers resented having to fight a war against people they did not see as the enemy. Instead, many believed they should have been in the US fighting for civil rights against the real enemy - white establishment America.
