NABJ Special Reports: Saluting Black Veterans


From the beginnings of creating our country, Black Americans have always fought to keep everyone free. Crispus Attucks, a Black man born into slavery, was the first to die during the Boston Massacre in 1770.

And support to keep the country free has not wavered from Black Americans since those days before the Revolutionary War. Black Americans have fought in every war and sometimes dying at disproportionately higher rates than other racial and ethnic groups such as in the Vietnam War.

The NABJ news team brings you different stories about the state of Black veterans  for Nov. 11, the day our country honors all veterans.
