BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY: BLACK PEOPLE IN THE SERVICE OF THE NAVY:
Black People served in the Navy since the beginning, and they worked as civilian and have provided it with important services from other works of life. One can run a Time Line of Black People services in the U.S. Navy from the 1860s as they were present in the crew of the U. S. Navy Ships through out the 19th century.The presence was greatly enhanced during the American Civil Wars as newly freed slaves and a greatly expanded Navy worked together in a common purpose. Some of the Images you are about to see are of Black People in the U.S. Navy ships from the 19th century onwards.
