The Story of America’s First Black Marines

Record #:
Until only a few years ago, few knew much about the first black Marines, or even that they trained in North Carolina. A museum is housed at today’s Camp Johnson in Jacksonville, where the first recruits attended boot camp in the 1940s. At the museum, visitors see what the men’s living quarters looked like, artifacts, and photographs.
