Black Military Service

I designed this collage as a gift to Honor and Thank the many generations of Black Men from York, Pa. who served in this nation’s Military, defending the ideals upon which it stands….even though the situation here continues to be far from ideal. We Blacks in York and this country have a Rich and Noble history however exploited and painful it has been. The experiences of the “everyday” Black Man and Women should be cherished and articulated at every opportunity. The story of the Black man in the Military will be just one part of an overall discussion on The Black Experience in York I will be giving at the York Historical Society on Saturday August 13, at 10:30 am. All are welcome………..
