North's Black Student Union to Host Tuskegee Airman

Posted by Community Relations Department on 4/23/2014

North’s Black Student Union is hosting a viewing of the movie Red Tails about the Tuskegee Airmen, Friday, April 25 at 3:30 p.m. in the auditorium.  Admission is free.  There will be a panel discussion and an opportunity to meet members of the Tuskegee Airmen following the movie. 

These men were members of U.S. Army Air Force units in World War II that were comprised primarily of the first African American flyers and maintenance crews.   The group compiled an impressive record, primarily in the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations.

 

 

 

The Arizona Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen and the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals will also be promoting its free Aviation Career Education (ACE) Academy, May 27-31 for youth interested in pursuing aviation-related or aerospace careers.
