The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African American military aviators in the United States armed forces. The American military and federal government were racially segregated during WWII. The Tuskegee Airmen were subject to racial discrimination, both within and outside the Armed Forces. Despite these adversities, they trained and flew with distinction. The story of these brave patriots needs to be told, and the rare opportunity to hear this story as told by one of the original Airmen, is available for anyone who lives history. The Historical Society banquet will be held at Spring Hollow Golf Club at 6:00 PM on September 21st, 2011. The cost for the talk is $40 and includes choice of dinner entrée.
