This small but powerful museum is located in the neighborhood where some of our nation's unsung military men and women once lived, went to school, and played!
Many historical buildings and homes weren't preserved, which is typical here in our country. However, through donations of oral/visual "artifacts " of the local descendants of these brave people, a museum was created, burned down, then restored through numerous transformations and uses.
The 'very proud local youths' who narrated and led the tour were so excited and knowledgeable to orate about the local heroes/heroines that willingly served in the military in spite of the lack of respect here in their own country.
I am greatly moved, educated, and proud of this hidden, historically important part of our Americans of African descent, especially the ones highlighted at this local, Hattiesburg supported museum.
Our thanks to you, Hattiesburg, Miss.
