Buffalo Soldier

Yosemite National Park Ranger Shelton Johnson will present his Buffalo Soldier living history program today in Washington, D.C. in celebration of Black History Month. Shelton discovered an anonymous photograph of African American soldiers in the Yosemite Research library and from that discovery he created a fascinating interpretive program that details their history. When you visit the park, check Yosemite Today for the program of interpretive schedules and be sure to catch his Buffalo Soldiers program.
