Making of "buffalo soldiers: reVision"

Location: Center of Southwest Studies Lyceum, Fort Lewis College

Sponsored by the CSWS & FLC's Diversity Collaborative

Join us for a special screening of Making of buffalo soldiers: reVision, a film following eight well-known contemporary artists from around the U.S. as they create the dynamic and thought-provoking exhibition buffalo soldiers: reVision at History Colorado's Fort Garland Museum & Cultural Center. Led by artist Chip Thomas, the contributors to buffalo soldiers: reVision explore the complicated legacy of Buffalo Soldiers, the all-Black Army regiments established in 1866 following the Civil War. Stationed in places like Colorado's own Fort Garland and Fort Lewis, these regiments played an active role in American westward expansion and the displacement of Indigenous populations.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion with Johnny Taylor Valdez and artists Chip Thomas, Esther Belin, and Rosie Carter. The panel will be moderated by Eric Carpio, director of the Fort Garland Museum & Cultural Center.

Light refreshments provided. The Center's exhibition gallery will be open prior to the event from 6:00 to 7:00 PM.
