Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts

PBS America: Monday 27 November at 20:20

African Americans have a long and honourable history of serving with America’s armed forces, participating in both World Wars and many other conflicts across the globe. Yet at home they faced discrimination and a lack of civil rights.

Their involvement in many of their country’s military campaigns is not without its contradictions. As American soldiers under orders, they would also play a part in the subjugation of Indigenous peoples as the US appropriated tribal land; the persecution of striking silver miners in Idaho, and the fight against Filipinos seeking for independence in the Spanish-American War.

Drawing upon the testimony of historians, experts and descendants, along with archive material, re-enactments and animation, this documentary tells the complex story of the so- called ‘Buffalo Soldiers’.

I have worked with Global Listings both during my time at Universal and more recently at London Live. They have been extremely professional and prompt with their delivery of our monthly highlights and are always quick to question anything that doesn’t seem right. I would definitely recommend them.
