Call of duty

Local actors ranging in age from five to 60 participated in “Man of Honor,” a play about the Life of Lt. Henry O. Flipper (portrayed above by Devon Mosby) Nov. 10 at Henrico Theatre in Highland Springs. Flipper was the first African American to graduate from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The event also featured a slide show recognizing local veterans, including Welford L. Williams, the subject of a recent story in the Henrico Citizen.
