Understanding Freedom

Black Men and Women coming from under the shackles of slavery and the injustice of man, bonding together to fight for their rights as equal citizens in an American society which has for too long looked upon them as property.

Freedom Is No Gift

Braving the storm of war, these men and women knew that freedom was not a gift to be given them, but a prize to be won from their sacrifices and service that would demand the respect and honor of being free and their willingness to fight for it.
