The U.S. Army has overturned the convictions of 110 Black soldiers charged over a century ago with mutiny, murder and assault in a Texas riot.
Nineteen of the Black Army soldiers convicted were sentenced to death and executed following the riot in 1917, when members of the 24th Infantry Regiment clashed with police and white residents of heavily segregated Houston. Most of the other soldiers received life sentences.
