B.J. Martin's Martin Bomber Plant work certificate
World War II
This is B.J. Martin's certificate given in recognition of his work at the Martin Bomber Plant during World War II. Many African Americans worked at the Martin Bomber Plant during World War II, helping to make a variety of war-related materials. Work at the plant was usually considered “good work” in an era when many industrial plants still discriminated against black workers.
