In support of our Buffalo Soldiers Exhibition, we are bringing awareness to an exciting collaborative project between GSAAC and The City of Tucson Ward 5 Office .The construction of a memorial plaza is nearing completion - but they need your help! The Tucson Buffalo Soldier Memorial Plaza has been approved and construction will commence soon, but as with many large municipal projects, it is necessary for GSAAC to raise additional funds. Currently there are no monuments or museums in Tucson celebrating the contributions Black Americans made in settling southern Arizona. It is GSAAC's goal, through the erection of this monument, to preserve and recognize the work of the Buffalo Soldiers who were stationed here.

This new memorial will educate the Tucson community about the rich history of the Buffalo Soldiers and their integral role in defending and settling the American West.
