Celebrating Our Black Heroes!
In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
The Museum of UnCut Funk salutes Black Vets on Veterans Day in a unique and hip manner. We have sourced a number of our comic books from our collection to pay tribute to those who have fought in every war America has participated in. This exhibition, although small, highlights comic book covers featuring Black war heroes from our Black Comic Book Collection. Peace!
