Tour Guide Tell All

Black History at Arlington National Cemetery

February 4, 2021

"And his experience is not unique.  There were men who fought in World War I, Black soldiers who would be beaten up for wearing their uniforms, who would be attacked for talking about their service….and it’s exceptionally tough for these World War I veterans of color who come back."


Our Black History Month series kicks off with an exploration of service and sacrifice in uniform. Tour Guide Tell All comes back to the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery to explore some of the notable figures of Black history laid to rest on the grounds and the often-untold stories of those that called the land home.  Learn about Maria Syphax, Uncle Jim, a freedman's village, "Black Death," a highly decorated father-son duo, and more.
