The members of the 332d Fighter Group and the 99th, 100th, 301st, and 302d Fighter Squadrons during World War II are remembered in part because they were the only African American pilots who served in combat with the Army Air Forces during the war. They are more often called the Tuskegee Airmen since they trained at Tuskegee Army Air Field. In the more than sixty years since World War II, several stories have grown up about the Tuskegee Airmen, some of them true and some of them false. This talk focuses on the myths and misconceptions about the Tuskegee Airmen, thoroughly researched and debunked by Air Force historian Daniel Haulman, PhD. Meet and greet opportunity as well as book sale/signing.
Presenter: Dr. Daniel Haulman
Wine and Light Hors d‘oeuvres will be served by LULU of Palm Springs.
