New exhibit opens at African-American military museum

with one comment


A new exhibit is focusing on the everyday lives of African-American soldiers who trained at Camp Shelby during the Second World War. The exhibit is called Archaeology of the World War Two African-American Barracks and it’s on display at Hattiesburg’s African-American Military History Museum.

The exhibit features about 100 artifacts excavated in the last 5 years from former barracks areas at Camp Shelby that were occupied by black soldiers in the 1940s. It also features photos of life at the post during the same period.

The exhibit runs through the month of October.
