Over 50 Marines and base officials from Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany visited the Albany Civil Rights Institute in honor of Black History Month Friday morning.
The visit was a part of Professional Military Education as the marines develop into leaders.
Colonel Donald J Davis said "I hope that they get a better appreciation of where we've come from and the things we're capable of doing good and bad."
Davis adds he was glad to give this experience to some marines who had their first visit to the Albany Civil Rights Institute today.
