"This essay examines the role of Black American nurses during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic and the aftermath of World War I. " We explore how unsuccessful bid by Black leaders for admitting Black nurses to the Army Nurse Corps, and the Navy Nurse Corps during World War II generated opportunities for 18 Black nurses to serve in the army during the pandemic and war's aftermath. This case report reframes the response to epidemics and other public health crises as potential ways to advance health equity. ".
