NOTE: This program was originally scheduled for Thursday, May 30 and was moved to Thursday, June 20.
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.
