  • A Museum dedicated to the African American Armed Forces and the many roles Blacks/ African Americans Served their Country, during each War or Conflict and Non Declared Warfare. The separate military act did not flaw the proud appreciates Black Americans had and HAVE for their country " The United States of America".
