Hari Jones, Curator of the African American Civil War, has conducted extensive research on African descent covert activities during the Civil War. onald Markle wrote in his book Spies and Spymasters of the Civil War, "Much like the Negro that served in the Union fighting forces, the Negro's contribution to the spying efforts of the Union Army has not received the recognition that it is due. Hari brings these contributions to light in his lecture series entitled: For Light and Liberty: African Descent Spies of the Rebellion.
Hari Jones's lectures entitled For Light and Liberty: African Descent Spies of the Rebellion examines the Africans who laid the foundation of the secret society that informs the League, the American descendants of these Africans who organize the League, those groomed for leadership as the "clash of arms" between North and South approaches, and the operatives who leave a very big footprint in Civil War History.

Hari Jones Bio
Hari Jones is the assistant director and curator of the Washington, D.C.-based African American Civil War Freedom Foundation and Museum. He is one of the foremost authorities on the role of African Americans in the Civil War. Hari's refreshingly new perspective on this subject reveals just how extensive and well-organized Americans of African descent were in their efforts to end slavery and gain their rights as citizens in league with the Constitution. Before Hari fully immersed himself in this subject matter, he served in the United States Marine Corps for over twenty years. He retired as a captain in 1997. Since then he has been conducting extensive research on African American military service throughout American history. Hari is convinced that one of the best ways to dispel the myths that marginalize the military contributions of African Americans is through museum exhibits. 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 to tell the story. ''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.''
Other than his work at the African American Civil War Museum, Hari has worked on exhibits that are currently 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 Center 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 and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) have also sought his expertise. He has appeared on the History Channel's ''Gettysburg'' documentary, PBS's ''American Lives II with Henry Louis Gates,'' and the History Detectives. Hari was also called on by NBC's ''Who Do You Think You Are?'' to assist Vanessa Williams in understanding the contributions of her Civil War ancestor David Carll, who served in the 26th United States Colored Troops.
