Second Friday Lecture Series: Buffalo Soldiers: The Invisible Soldiers Who Fought For a Dream

July 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Friday, July 12  |  12:00pm – 1:00pm  |  Speaker: Darrell Greene, LTC(R)

Learn the history, sacrifices, and incredible achievements of the Buffalo Soldiers and African Americans who have served in our armed forces.

In 1770, Crispus Attucks, an African American man, was the first American to die in the fight for the independence of the United States. Since that time, African Americans have always played a significant and important role in the military history of our great country. However, it was the unsung heroes of the legendary Buffalo Soldiers that set the standards for all of the successes, contributions and accomplishments of African American men and women serving in today’s military force.

Buffalo soldiers helped to pave the way for the expansion of white settlers moving Westward by maintaining order between the Native (Indigenous) Americans and the settlers, helped to build forts and roads, patrolled our borders, protected National parks, mail stagecoaches, and railroad construction crews. They were the Invisible Warriors that led the way for all who followed in their footsteps.
