Movie Screening “Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts”

Clark County Historical Museum will host a screening of “Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts” by local documentarian, Dru Holley.

Established by Congress, the 14th Amendment promised citizenship in exchange for enlistment, prompting many African American men. They were denied due to Jim Crow laws but still served. The film examines the profound and often-contradictory roles played by Buffalo Soldiers in U.S. history, and how they fought on two sets of front lines: military conflicts abroad and civil rights struggles at home.

Admission is free. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis.
