TENTH Annual Black and Blue Civil War History Program

Are
ya'll ready to do Black and Blue Again? Need your persons to deliver the
African Descent Union Navy Freedom Fighters' history, plus a few soldiers.
Concentrating on the sailors and nurses this year. Their history has been
unknown much more than the U. S. Colored Troops. Always said let's look at the
enslaved and non-enslaved African descent folks on the ships in the Mississippi
Valley. We got 'em this year.
If
the October 14, 2017 date is not good for your persons to perform, please,
please let my person know ASAP.
