The Walking Ghosts Of Black History is dedicated to providing the public with reliable comprehensive information about the contributions and sacrifices of African Americans in the history of the United States military. Our mission is to foster greater awareness of this knowledge, and the need of its preservation, thereby creating constructive changes in our society’s understanding of the significance of the African-American contributions to our nation's Military Armed Forces.

                 The conception of this organization began when Leon Watkins was cast as the flag bearer for the national colors for the Massachusetts 54th Regiment in the motion picture "GLORY". Recognizing Watkins’ true commitment to his ideas and vision, the film producer, Freddie Fields, contributed 20  Civil War uniforms used in the movie to help start THE WALKING GHOSTS OF BLACK HISTORY Organization (TWGOBH). 

            Since then TWGOBH has participated in numerous events and school lectures. Including winning First place in the City of Oakland’s Veteran’s Day parade in 1991, and presenting a reef at the ceremony (The Presideo) of the 9th and 10th Cavalry / 24th and 25th infantry in Honor of National Buffalo Soldiers Day in the City of San Francisco 29 July 1992, the Home Front Festival / Rosie The Riveter Historic Society, Richmond, Ca, 13 Oct 2012 and the 1st annual 150th anniversary of the Burning of Darien- Darien,Ga.
