Race & Miltary Justice

by Heather Kushnerick, Special Collections Librarian

To complement our upcoming seminar, “The Largest Murder Trial in American History: Exploring the Houston Riot of 1917 and it’s Impact on Military Justice Today,” there is an exhibit of selected materials from the library on race and military justice in the library lobby. Included in the display are works on the Buffalo soliders, the Brownsville Raid, and Henry O. Flipper, the first African-American graduate of West Point. This exhibit will be up until April 15, 2012.
