The Eighteen of 1918–1919: Black Nurses and the Great Flu Pandemic in the United States

"This essay discusses the role of Black American nurses during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic and the aftermath of World War I. " We explore how during World War II, Black leaders' unsuccessful attempt to admit Black nurses to the Army Nurse Corps, and the Navy Nurse Corps expanded opportunities for 18 Black nurses to serve in the army during the pandemic and the war's aftermath. This report reveals that the pandemic incrementally improved civil rights in the Army Nurse Corps and Red Cross, as well as providing ephemeral opportunities for Black nurses overall.
