The training of 10 veterans to co-facilitate two series of humanities-based discussions of African American combat veterans’ experiences in the Civil War, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Civil War, Civil Rights, and Civic Duty: The African American Experience of War, a project of Longwood University, will focus on the neglected narrative of the African American experience of war. The project will focus on the involvements of black combat veterans in three historically distinct conflicts: the American Civil War, Vietnam, and the Global War on Terror (GWOT). Themes for the project include civil rights and patriotism, the role of race in war, homecoming, and the experiences of black women in war. Those topics will be explored through multiple humanities sources including historical documents, literary selections, public history, and film. In 2022, ten discussion leaders will participate in an intensive residential preparatory program that is grounded in the humanities and receive training in discussion facilitation. A series of discussions with African American combat veterans (male and female) will be conducted at the historic Moton Museum.
