Salt Lake Community College honored some of the African American pioneers of the United States military’s five branches. The College launched a campaign during National Black History month dedicated to the stories of military personnel that don’t often get told.

“Every year, Salt Lake Community College focuses on an aspect of Black History that is educational and isn’t necessarily in the mainstream,” said Joy Tlou, SLCC public relations director. “In the past, we’ve put together profiles of poets, visual artists, musicians, and this year we decided to take a closer look at some of the lesser-known accomplishments African-Americans have made to our country’s military history.”

Perhaps the two most famous groups profiled by the College were The Tuskegee Airmen and Buffalo Soldiers. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces. These soldiers fought in the United States’ armed forces in World War II. Buffalo Soldiers were members o…
