“Moke” is British slang for donkey and was the most stinging epithet West Point cadets could apply to Lt. Henry O. Flipper, the academy’s first black graduate. This affecting drama deals with his conviction on embezzlement charges trumped up by an all-white officer corps in Texas in 1882; the verdict was reversed, but not until 94 years later.
