Native American and Black Soldiers of the Civil War film screening

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, documentary producer/director and African-American studies professor Stan Armstrong introduces two films exploring the little-known role of Native American and Black soldiers in the Civil War. Native American and Black Soldiers of the Civil War illustrates the lives of American Indians on both sides of the conflict, including men like General Stand Watie, a Cherokee who rose to a general in the Confederate Army, and Colonel Ely S. Parker, the Seneca-Iroquis soldier and confidante of General Grant who helped draft the surrender papers signed by Lee at Appamattox. Armstrong will discuss both films and answer questions from the audience. Armstrong is also the director of Forgotten Battle of Fort Pillow and the Birth of the Ku Klux Klan, depicting the controversial 1864 massacre of African-American troops at the hands of future KKK leader Nathan Bedford Forrest.
