Take Our Stand:
the African American Military Experience
in the Age of Jim Crow

Produced in partnership with the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, Take Our Stand: the African American Military Experience in the Age of Jim Crow is a new exhibit from the American Civil War Center that chronicles the Black military experience from the Spanish-American War to the desegregation of the U.S. military in 1948.

 

Take Our Stand features rare historic images and documents reproduced from the Center’s John H. Motley Collection, an interactive lesson plan for students, and feedback panels where visitors can record their reactions to the exhibit.
