The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights by Fonda Lee

A fascinating story of the prejudice that faced black men and women in America's armed forces during World War II, and a nuanced look at those who gave their lives in service of a country where they lacked the most basic rights.
