Central Library branch presents ‘Buffalo Soldiers’
The Central branch of the Kansas City Public Library will host a program entitled ‘Buffalo Soldiers: Their Epic Story and Major Campaigns’ on Sunday, February 12, beginning at 2:00 p.m. In a discussion of her book, Park University historian Debra Sheffer discusses the impetus for the earliest black military service – enlistees hoped to attain full U.S. citizenship – and its legacy, assessing the social, economic, and political impact from colonial times through the era of the 19th-century Buffalo Soldier. African-Americans have served proudly in every great American war, including the Civil War, where their verve and valor led to the establishment of all-black regiments in 1866. “Buffalo Soldiers” played a significant role in the military campaigns and settlement of the American West, and paved the way for African-American soldiers in future conflicts. Learn more about them with this program.
