Beschreibung

Serving their country in time of war and peace only to face racism back in their homeland. We follow Tom, the son of a Buffalo Soldier at the turn of the twentieth century as he learns what it means to be a Black soldier in the United States Army from his father stationed in the West. After a family disaster, Tom and his mother are forced to survive in the seedy streets of Chicago to support themselves until Tom eventually follows in his father's footsteps and becomes a Buffalo Soldier himself. Years of war in the Philippines and guarding the borders of the American West find Tom and the men of the Twenty Fourth Infantry until the dawn of World War I, when he and his men are assigned to the city of Houston to guard the construction site of Camp Logan, a training center for troops to be sent to war in Europe. The all Black units first assignment in a city of the Deep South is littered with racism and violence against the veteran soldiers during this time of Jim Crow laws. Proud and not willing to bow to the archaic laws of the South, Tom and his unit go on the offensive in what becomes known as "The Houston Mutiny of 1917".
