Can African American join? Yes, membership in the SCV is open to all descendants of men who served in the Confederate armed forces, regardless of the race of the Confederate veteran or the descendant. Since many African Americans served in the Confederate armed forces, their direct and collateral descendants are eligible for admission to the SCV, which has African-American members, including Nelson Winbush, one of the more well-known members of the entire organization.
