Spike Lee displays the unique experience of Black veterans as they return to Vietname for buried treasure

In his latest joint, Spike Lee traces the journey of 4 Black Vietnam veterans as they return to Vietnam for buried treasure and the remains of their fallen leader.

Black Vietnam veterans occupy a unique space in American political history: the Vietnam War coincided with the height of the Civil Rights Movement, the US military was racially integrated while US society was not, and Black soldiers suffered an unprecedented set of racially disproportionate harms both in and after war.
