The mission of the African American Civil War Museum is to preserve and tell the stories of the United States Colored Troops and African American involvement in the American Civil War. We will tour the Museum and attend the lecture, "For Light and Liberty: African Descent Spies in the War of the Rebellion," in which the Curator, Hari Jones, brings the contributions of African Descent spies during the Civil War to light. This event is for all alumni, families, and friends of all ages.
