We stand in solidarity with the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum which was vandalized sometime on July 27 or 28. The museum, located in Mid-town Houston, honors the contributions of African American members of the U.S. military who fought and died for this nation and those who continue to serve their country at home and abroad. African Americans have fought for the United States since the Revolutionary War, even as the country denied them their basic rights as citizens. This museum and the history it preserves is vital to our local community and to our nation’s struggle to overcome its centuries long history of systemic racism.
