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. 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. 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.''
