Duty Beyond the Battlefield

Thursday, June 16 - 7 p.m. Auditorium and YouTube Live

In the years after the American Civil War, Black Americans continued to fight for a country that treated them as second-class citizens. While serving in America’s wars, they forged a new identity as freedom fighters, challenging white notions and demanding full citizenship and recognition. Dr. Le’Trice Donaldson probes the idea of what it meant to be a soldier who followed the philosophy of progress both on and off the battlefield.
