Muzeo’s exhibition “The Buffalo Soldier Experience” opened Feb. 3 and will be open through March 11 during Black History Month.
“Educational achievements and accomplishments of the Buffalo Soldiers are just the positive motivating force we want students and the community to see in this historical exhibit,” noted exhibit curator Bobby McDonald, a descendant of a Buffalo Soldier, whose father and several uncles were part of the 9th Cavalry during World War II.
“The Buffalo Soldier Experience” traces the historical contributions of black men and women in the United States Armed Forces, beginning with the 9th and 10th Cavalry Regiments who roamed the western frontier. Continuing through many major wars and conflicts throughout our American history, the exhibition will also highlight the ways in which Buffalo Solider military history intersected with the growth of the nation.
Sponsors include OC Black Chamber of Commerce and Disney Resort who will provide admission for Anaheim school children. Special thanks also go to UPS, OC Dept. of Education, 100 Black Men of Orange County, United States Postal Service, Explorer Studios, Buffalo Soldiers Mounted Cavalry Group, 9th and 10th Cavalry Association and Veterans Legal Institute.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $7 for military and seniors, $5 for children 4-12, and free for children three and under. Tickets are available for purchase at www.muzeo.org.
