Three Montford Point Marine alumni are shown on this poster inviting the general public to a presentation at the San Diego State University Library. These United States Marines are shown wearing the Congressional Medals of Honor awarded them in 2012: Carrel Reavis, Joe Earl Jackson, and J. T. Inge. The lecture, with introduction of these Marines and others from the local Montford Point Marines Association, was given by Melvin Chestnut as a designated speaker of the organization in the Leon Williams Room. The title of the presentation was "Fighting for the Right to Fight: A History of the Montford Point Marines." It was sponsored by the Library, Aztec Parents, the Student Veterans Organization, and the Joan and Art Barron Veterans Center. It bears the logo of the San Diego State University Library.
