What's Changed?

The History Channel is doing a segment on the 54th Regiment of the Union Army. There's nothing but praise for the Black troops and their white leader. They went above and beyond to prove themselves worthy of the fighting alongside (and against) white troops. They knew, according to the historians, that all of America was watching and that all Negros would be judged by their failure or success.

It's still that way today.
