    Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts

    Date November 11, 2024 7:00pm Pricing $6

    Interviews, reenactments, and animations tell the story of the Buffalo Soldiers —  Black army regiments, formed after the Civil War, that played pivotal roles in the settling of the American West. A number of the soldiers featured have strong ties to the Pacific Northwest – specifically Vancouver, Washington.  These soldiers fought bravely around the world for the United States, but were forced to fight for their own rights here at home.

    This award-winning documentary is particularly relevant today as our country is roiling with the agony of racial strife. By combining many diverse perspectives, the film examines the profound and often-contradictory roles played by Black soldiers in American history.

    Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts explores the often-contradictory role played by the Black soldiers throughout American history, with particular emphasis on the settling of the American West and colonialism abroad. By combining many diverse perspectives, the film examines the profound and often-contradictory roles played in American history by The Buffalo Soldiers and how they fought on two very different front lines: military conflicts abroad and civil rights struggles at home.
