This event in August will draw on the America250 theme “Unfinished Revolutions.” The conversation will mark the 75th anniversary of the desegregation of the military and its impact on civil rights and the definition of citizenship. Led by IMLS Director Crosby Kemper, scholars Matthew Delmont, Ph.D. and Jeffrey Sammons, Ph.D. and Brigadier General Terry V. Williams will engage in a conversation exploring the role people of color played in the armed forces from the Revolutionary War through the passage of President Harry Truman’s Executive Order 9981, which created the President's Committee on Equality of Treatment and Opportunity in the Armed Services and beyond.
