Hari Jones Bio

Hari is currently an independent researcher and consultant and serves on the board member of the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He is one of the foremost authorities on the role of Americans of African descent in the Civil War. Hari's refreshingly new perspective on this subject reveals just how extensive and well-organized these Americans were in their efforts to end slavery and gain their rights as citizens in league with the Constitution.
Hari is a proud native of Oklahoma and a graduate of the University of Oklahoma. And before Hari fully immersed himself in historical research and investigation, he served in the United States Marine Corps for over twenty years as an infantryman, an artillery officer and an intelligence officer. He retired as a captain in 1997. Since then he has been conducting extensive research on the military service of Americans of African descent throughout American history. His research has shed light on the many myths surrounding the military contributions of these Americans. As the curator, content developer, and script writer for the African American Civil War Museum's exhibit entitled "The Glorious March to Liberty," he dispels such myths by employing the voices of the history makers. "In our exhibit," he explains, "we quote no scholars. If you were not there in the making of the history, you do not get a quote in our exhibit."
Hari was the content developer, script writer and curator for the permanent exhibit "Glorious March to Liberty" at the African American Civil War Museum in Washington, DC. Hari has also worked on exhibits that have been on display across the country. He was a content developer for the National Park Service (NPS) museum at the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site at Tuskegee, Alabama, a content adviser for the American Civil War Museum traveling exhibit "Take Our Stand" and a content adviser for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) exhibit "Discovering the Civil War."
Television outlets, including the History Channel, Fox News, NBC and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) have also sought his expertise. He appeared on the award winning documentary "The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross with Henry Louis Gates," the History Channel's "Gettysburg" documentary, and over a dozen other documentary films. He notes that his most enjoyable appearance was on NBC's "Who Do You Think You Are?
Hari is the author of a book of poetry, historical novels and an historical series entitled For Light and Liberty. The first in this series The Road to Emancipation: How the War to Preserve the Union Became a War to End Slavery was published in 2012.
