NOTE: This program has been POSTPONED (again). All registrants have been notified.

Members of the Col. Charles McGee Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen from Hanscom Air Force Base will present a program on the history of the Tuskegee Airmen. The Tuskegee airmen were the first black servicemen to serve as military aviators in the U.S. armed forces, flying with distinction during World War II. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the U.S. military. The highly publicized successes of the Tuskegee Airmen helped pave the way for the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces under President Harry Truman in 1948. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Registration for this event has now closed.
