The  Amarillo United Citizens Forum Annual Black History Banquet featured James Reed Faulkner, a historical re-enactor, portrayed Trooper Tyrrell  Briggs, a former slave who becomes a Buffalo Soldier.

Faulkner’s performance is an excerpt from his one-man theatrical play “LEGACY: The Buffalo Soldiers Story.” In it, he recounts the life of a Buffalo Soldier through the eyes of a man named Tyrrell Biggs, a former slave who became a soldier in the late 1860s after the American Civil War.

James Faulkner is a  Buffalo Soldiers National Museum volunteer. For information, visit www.buffalosoldiersmuseum.com.
