Cinema Sunday: Men Of Bronze
Sunday, November 6 | 2 p.m.
NYS Museum Huxley Theater 
Adults and Teens | Free

MEN OF BRONZE is the definitive story of the black American soldiers of the 369th combat regiment, known as the "Harlem Hellfighters," who served with the French Army in World War I. Although relegated to non-combat duty by the U.S. Command, the 369th was sent to France and spent more time in front-line trenches than any other American infantry unit. Fighting alongside French, Moroccan and Senegalese soldiers at the campaigns of Champagne-Marne and Meuse-Argonne, the courageous men of the 369th distinguished themselves in some of the fiercest battles of the Great War. 

Following the screening, there will be a brief Q&A with Senior Historian Aaron Noble and State Historian Devin Lander. For questions, please call (518) 474-8774.
