Memorial Day Observed (US) - For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots


For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots spans the revolution to Iraq and examines why, despite enormous injustice these heroic men and women fought so valiantly for freedoms they themselves did not enjoy.

From Variety: PBS has brought on Halle Berry to host For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots, a celebration of black veterans set to air in February. The show will use letters, diaries, speeches and military records to document the accomplishments of black soldiers as far back as the Revolutionary War. "Our goal is to raise public consciousness about this extraordinary and little-known aspect of our nation's history," said producer, co-writer and director Frank Martin.
