A memorial honoring the Montford Point Marines broke ground last week in Jacksonville. We honor the legacy of the Montford Point Marines and hear a firsthand account of 92 year old Montford Pointer Norman Preston.
This week on the Down East Journal, we remember the brave Montford Point Marines who faced segregation in service for an opportunity to fight for our country during World War II. And, conversation and music with Cabaret singer Deborah Boily about her upcoming benefit concert this weekend for the New Bern Civitan Club. The Down East Journal airs Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations, and Saturday at noon on News and Ideas.
