75 years ago dur­ing World War II a dead­ly dis­as­ter hit when sailors, most of them African Amer­i­cans, were load­ing ammu­ni­tion onto ships at Cal­i­for­ni­a’s Port Chica­go. 320 men were killed and while the white offi­cers were giv­en leave time and com­mend­ed for hero­ic efforts, 328 of the sur­viv­ing black enlis­tees were sent to load ammu­ni­tion on anoth­er ship. When they refused, fifty men were charge and con­vict­ed of mutiny. It was the largest mutiny tri­al in U.S. naval his­to­ry, and an ear­ly spark in the Civ­il Rights struggle.
