An open and transparent person, Jeramy Kruser speaks his mind and welcomes others to do the same. He served in the Marine Corps before coming to Ithaca and Cornell University, and travelled extensively. He fell in love with the Ithaca area and the people who live and work here. He is currently a member of Team Red, White and Blue and the Cornell Veterans Colleague Network Group and volunteer for the Greater Ithaca Activities Center and STAP AIDS Ride for Life. “I want to cultivate diversity in an equitable and inclusive work environment, and strengthen bonds and communication between faculty, staff and students,” he said.

“Civil Warriors,” from award-winning local film company PhotoSynthesis Productions, tells the true story of 26 African-American men from Tompkins County who enlisted in the US Colored Troops and fought in the Civil War. The story is told through dramatic spoken word performances, carefully interwoven with historical images and contemporary commentary.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Eric Acree of Cornell University’s Africana Center and featuring co-directors/co-producers Deborah C. Hoard and Che Broadnax, members of the cast and crew, and possible special guests TBA.
