Black Soldiers at War display

Civil war black soldiersFebruary is Black History Month and in addition to all of the events going on campus, stop by Rentschler Library ‘s display titled “Black Soldiers: Segregated then Integrated.”  Learn about the participation of black soldiers in the Civil War, WW I and every major armed conflict since then. See the text of Pres. Harry S. Truman’s Executive Order 9981 which required integration of all the armed forces and created the President’s Committee on Equality of Treatment and Opportunity in the Armed Services (Fahy Committee).

The display also has selected books about African American service in the U.S. Armed Forces.
