The roles are switched for an investigation of a WW1-era poster owned by Tukufu Zuberi. Titled Our Colored Heroes, text on the poster tells an incredible World War I story of bravery in combat by a pair of African American soldiers. Tukufu and fellow host Elyse Luray track down the story, and call on the insight of U.S. Senator Charles Schumer to answer Tukufu’s question.
