From Lauren Thomas:
Come see the exhibit “The Tuskegee Airmen: The Segregated Skies of WWII” on the main floor of the Burgess Administration Building, Feb. 9-13.
“The Tuskegee Airmen” explores the history and heroism of the first African American pilots to fly in combat during World War II. Although required to train and fight in segregated units, the Tuskegee Airmen proved to be some of the most skilled aviators during the war. Between 1941 and 1946, what became known as the “Tuskegee experiment” trained more than 1,000 pilots.
