As the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War approached on November 11, 2018, there were still no memorials in Houston honoring the memory of African-American WWI soldiers. This needed to change, and thanks to the help of generous donors, funds from the Buffalo Soldier Museum, and a matching grant from the WWI Centennial Commission of the US government, the memorial will be delivered this week in Houston!
The Memorial, unimaginable because of racial tensions in Houston only a 100 years ago, not only honors our past heroes but sends a message of hope for generations to come.
The Memorial will be dedicated on Saturday November 10th, 2018, at 10 am, at the Buffalo Soldier Museum. All are welcome.
DID YOU KNOW... Did you know that more than 200 american soldiers volunteered and fought under the French colors as early as in 1914, three years before the US entered the Great War in 1917 ? That the first African-American pilot fighter, Eugene Bullard, was trained in the French AirForce? That after the US join the conflict in 1917, the African-American troops fought in french uniforms, side by side with french soldiers? That there are 5 WWI memorials dedicated to the African-American regiments in France?
