Join author and free-lance journalist Alexis Clark as she shares the story of Elinor Powell and Frederick Albert, an unlikely love story between an African American nurse and a German POW during WWII. In her book, “Enemies in Love,” Clark sheds light on the history and discrimination of African American nurses during the war as well as the life of German POWs in the United States.
