History has produced unforeseen disparities in everything from wealth to health outcomes. This phenomenon is even more stark along racial lines. The military is not immune from this. Black Veterans Project seeks to bridge the historical divide to ensure public access to the unique history of Black military service currently absent from mainstream discourse.
We’ve undertaken work to remove confederate monuments and namesakes from Military installations, write extensively around issues of military racial justice and discrimination and create video and digital content to provide a more balanced historical record that accounts for the contributions of Black veterans throughout American History.
