      Join the Another View team for their live broadcast from American Revolution Museum at Yorktown about the "Forgotten Soldier” special exhibition. This is an opportunity to explore not only the roles Black soldiers played in the American Revolution but in other wars as well.  During the American Revolution, free and enslaved Blacks found themselves on both sides of the war. The “Forgotten Soldier” special exhibition explores their roles and how their contributions impacted the war that shaped their lives. The exhibit tells the Black Soldiers stories through rare artifacts, documents, artwork and interactive exhibits. You won't want to miss it! Special guests include: Katherine Egner Gruber, Jamestown -Yorktown Foundation special exhibitions curator for "Forgotten Soldier,” Dr. Stephanie J. Richmond, Associate Professor of History at Norfolk State University, Harvey Bakari, historical content advisor for “Forgotten Soldier” and former manager of African-American interpertation at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, and Christy Coleman, CEO American Civil War Museum. *We're asking all guests to plan to arrive by 11:15am*
