Morgan State University’s Magnificent Marching Machine appeared on the world stage recently, performing in Normandy, France on the 80th Anniversary and Commemoration of D-Day.

This makes them the first HBCU to participate in the internationally recognized event.

The world watched as more than 100 students from Morgan State’s marching band remembered and honored military servicemembers – while making history at the same time.

On June 6, 1944 thousands of troops are believed to have stormed the beach shores of Normandy to fight and liberate France from Nazi control—a moment the world knows as D-Day.

During their performance, they paid homage to the thousands of Americans known as “The Greatest Generation” who gave the ultimate sacrifice and served during World War II.

Their performances included renditions of “Taps” and “America the Beautiful” as they marched through two towns.
