Howard University Galleries

Howard University owns hundreds of important pieces of fine art, artifacts, and documents of historical significance. You may purchase reproductions of these images, as prints or as specialty items.

DISCLAIMER: Because you are licensing (purchasing a reproduction of) a true original piece from Howard University’s precious works collection, there may be “white space” surrounding the reproduced image you receive. The white space is due to differences in the aspect ratio, the ratio of the width of the image to its height, between the true original piece (non-standard aspect ratio) and the reproduced piece (standard aspect ratio).

Deeds Not Words: The Buffalo Soldiers in World War II

More than one million African Americans served in the armed forces during World War II. But while the U.S. Military fought to free those oppressed by the forces of fascism, the men of the Army's 92nd Infantry Division faced racial inequality and segregation at home and abroad. Still, the 92nd excelled, and helped to liberate Italy and bring an end to Hitler's Third Reich. For their effort, the Buffalo Soldiers received more than 12,000 decorations and citations - including two medals of honor.

Deeds Not Words: The Buffalo Soldiers in World War II is the true story of one of the last segregated army units as told by the men themselves. Included in the documentary are interviews with the Director of the Army War College, the daughter of one of the white officers in the unit, and one of the 92nd's biggest supporters - former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Colin Powell.
