For many years, Black superheroes have been dismissed as sidekicks, imitators of established white heroes, or are accused of having no role outside of blaxploitation film contexts. Yet the importance of a Storm, Luke Cage, Black Panther, or Jon Stewart as Green Lantern or Miles Morales as Spiderman cannot be understated. Their entry into comic books also served as entry to the hearts and imaginations of black children, confirming that they too can be superheroes and could one day save the world.

Black soldiers have been portrayed or ignored by mainstream history. Yet, they have been at the center of every American military saga since Crispus Attacks drew the unfortunate distinction of being the first American killed in the Revolutionary War. This photo set tries to reverse that erasure.
