Announcements: Woodville Tompkins High School Hosts Exhibit on Tuskegee Airmen

Title

Woodville Tompkins High School Hosts Exhibit on Tuskegee Airmen 

Body

Woodville Tompkins Technical & Career High School is hosting a traveling exhibit entitled “The Tuskegee Airmen: The Segregated Skies of World War II. The exhibit is on loan from Kennesaw State University's Museum of History and Holocaust Education.

The Tuskegee Airmen" explores the history and heroism of the first African American pilots to fly in combat during World War II. Between 1941 and 1946, what became known as the “Tuskegee experiment” trained more than 1,000 pilots.

 

Although required to train and fight in segregated units, the Tuskegee Airmen proved to be some of the most skilled aviators during the war.

The undeniable courage and skill of these brave pilots contributed to the desegregation of the United States Armed Forces in 1948.

This exhibit offers a look into the historical challenges and triumphs of these unsung American heroes. It is available for viewing in the school's media center from 1:30pm to 3:00pm through November 9, 2017.
