as John E Lewis
A century and a half ago, Black soldiers, known as "Buffalo Soldiers", changed the face of the military forever. Despite their astonishing achievements in the face of heartbreaking adversity, these brave men have remained obscure...until now. Buffalo Soldiers: A Quest for Freedom is an in-depth documentary that begins in the turbulent days of the Revolutionary War, traverses Frontier expansion and the Spanish American War, and concludes with a modern perspective of military officers of color. This ambitious body of work chronicles, year by year, the extraordinary story of these notable African American men -and yes woman. - and their invaluable service to this country.
