CBS Sunday Morning Show Interviews Jason Holt

The CBS Sunday Morning Show interviewed Jason Holt, Co-Chair of the CSG Law Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee, to discuss a significant chapter in American history tied to his family. The segment aired on February 25, 2024.

The focus was on the 1917 Houston riot involving the all-black 24th Infantry Regiment, also known as the Buffalo Soldiers, including Pfc. Thomas C. Hawkins, a relative of Jason. This interview covered the Army’s recent decision to overturn the convictions and restore the honors of these soldiers, among them Pfc. Hawkins, who was executed by hanging.

The segment emphasized the contributions of the family members of these soldiers, including Jason, whose ongoing advocacy helped to rectify this miscarriage of justice.
