Buffalo Soldiers: From Slave to Soldier
February 26 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
We’re honored to have representatives with the Alexander/Madison Chapter of the Buffalo Soldier 9th & 10th (Horse) Cavalry Association in Kansas City, the organization’s oldest chapter in the nation, bring their program to our library. You’ll hear the history of the buffalo soldiers from slavery to soldiers from certified oral and written storytellers (in authentic costume).
Learn about the lasting legacy of the buffalo soldiers: their formation, the challenges they faced, and how they helped to change the course of American history.
