Buffalo Soldiers

Our story this week is Black Frontiers which tells the story of how sharecroppers moved north to get out of debt back in the 1800s. It describes the obstacles they faced in trying to settle on free soil as pioneers. The African-American soldiers were named “Buffalo Soldiers” by the Indians which they wore as a badge of honor. I found this video by Bob Marley on youtube which my kids last year loved. And kept singing over and over. ūüôā One student last year even said she couldn’t get the tune out of her head and was singing it at home. ūüôā

So here you go:
