Beloved actor Danny Glover hosts an evening tribute to the famed Buffalo Soldiers – African Heritage soldiers who served with unimpeachable distinction for a country that rarely appreciated their valor and sacrifice. Glover starred in the 1997 film Buffalo Soldiers, chronicling the regiment’s battles with Native Americans in nineteenth-century New Mexico, and the complicated racial tensions and realities that existed between the sides. Glover has been an actor for more than 25 years, earning numerous awards and accolades for roles in films like Lethal Weapon and The Color Purple. He is also a renowned activist, currently serving as a UNICEF ambassador.
Earning their name as Cavalrymen in the wilds of the American west, these regiments bravely performed their duties under General Pershing in World War I, in the Pacific Theater in World War II, and in the Korean War. The Buffalo Soldiers Museum in Tacoma serves a mission to educate, preserve and present the history and outstanding contributions of America’s Buffalo Soldiers through educational programs, historic research, youth outreach programs, and exhibits. The museum also creates and disseminates important materials about the history of the Buffalo Soldiers to include their heroic military service and key contributions.
