A moving forensic/art exhibit is one of the highlights you can discover during Black History Month in Houston. The Main St Theater, Buffalo Soldiers Museum, the Smithsonian and forensic sculptor Amanda Danning all have a piece to tell in a story that begins with a Buffalo Soldier, Thomas Smith.
You go behind the scene to see the science that drives forensic anthropology. It'll reveal some of the intricate details on how they work with sculptors to examine bones and bodies and uncover the identities and recreate the faces of unidentifiable human remains.
This display focuses on artifacts found at Fort Craig, New Mexico one of the outpost where the Buffalo Soldiers served after the Civil War. This incredible exhibit blends science and art to share the story of how once forgotten soldiers become the center of attention and admiration.
