The Tuskegee Airmen Chronology

February 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A timeline of the Red Tails providing a unique year-by-year overview of the fascinating story of the Tuskegee Airmen, embracing important events in the formation of the first military training for black pilots in United States history, the phases of their training at various air fields in Tuskegee and elsewhere, their continued training at other bases around the U. S., and their deployment overseas. Their exemplary performance proved conclusively that given the opportunity and resources black men could fly and fight in combat every bit as well as their white counterparts. They fought two enemies, Nazis in Europe and racism at home, and through their dedication and efforts earned a hard-won double victory.

Presenter: Daniel Haulman PhD, United States Air Force Historical Research Agency
