CNN quoted Brenda Moore for a story on the nation’s first African American veterans monument unveiled Saturday at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park. "This monument gives us an opportunity to not only commemorate, but also to educate ourselves and future generations about the contributions and sacrifices African Americans have made to the American ideals of freedom, liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all,” said Moore.
