U.S. Army veteran and author of I’m Still Standing: From Captive Soldier to Free Citizen–My Journey Home, Shoshana Johnson was taken as prisoner of war when her convoy was captured during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Recognized as the first black female POW in U.S. military history, Johnson will share the story of her company’s capture and the acts of bravery that followed, including their rescue by U.S. Marines.
