The Naval Historical Foundation will host the next “Second Saturday Webinar” on February 13 at 11 AM (ET). They will be celebrating Vice Admiral Samuel L. Gravely as we approach the centennial year of his birth.
Noted historians Regina Akers and Paul Stillwell will provide a contextual overview of the life and times of a young African American Sailor from Virginia who earned a commission as a naval officer during World War II and work his way up the Surface Navy ranks accomplishing many “firsts” — from ship command to fleet command — along the way. Retired Rear Admirals Sinclair Harris and Julius Caesar will then offer follow up commentary and participate in a lively discussion and Q&A.
