5,000 African American soldiers and civilians have found their final resting place at Arlington National Cemetery. But yet their stories remain largely untold, and their existence feels like a secret.
“I have made it my job as a photographer to give a voice to the voiceless,” Michael A. McCoy boldly states. Michael is an African American Veteran and documentary photographer who knows first hand what it means to sacrifice for your country. Because of this, he’s focusing his work on those who fell and paved the way for future generations. Not the least of which are those whose selfless and brave contribution seems to be living deep in the shadows.
