John Malveaux of 

Attended February 25, 2017 screening of documentary WITH ONE TIED HAND-detailed recollections by two wounded Buffalo Soldiers who helped liberate Lucca, Italy in World War II, returned to a 'Jim Crow' America, and then revisited Lucca as treasured heroes for a reinactment of the liberation. The central recounter in the documentary is Ivan Houston. See pic with Mr. Houston whose personal biography is titled Black Warriors. See video Black Warriors was co authored by retired teacher/historian Gordon Cohn. Mr. Cohn has reminded me numerous times that as a teenage Pony League baseball player, I was always smiling but seldom smile today. See pic of Mr. Gordon Cohn.
