‘Fight for the right to fight’ — Black history at Fort Knox

“For more than 200 years, African-Americans have participated in every conflict in United States history. They have not only fought bravely the common enemies of the United States but have also had to confront the individual and institutional racism of their countrymen.” - Retired Lt. Col. Michael Lee Lanning, author of “The African-American Soldier: From Crispus Attucks to Colin Powell.”
