Clarence “Bucky” McGill: What Democracy, Diversity & Opportunity Mean to Me
I’m Clarence “Bucky” McGill of the Syracuse 8. I grew up in Binghamton, New York, but I’ve lived in Virginia for the past 25 years. As an African American who took a stand in the face of adversity, I’m passionate about the 2019 Commemoration’s themes of democracy, diversity, and opportunity.
Editor’s note: Want to join the 2019 Commemoration in recognizing the experiences of African Americans dating back to the 1619 arrival of the first enslaved? Join us for the African Arrival Commemoration and Fort Monroe Visitor & Education Center Dedication.
