The Tuskegee Airmen
This virtual presentation by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library told the story of how a group of black men who were once considered of little value to the World War II war effort proved they could take down enemy aircraft abroad and racial barriers at home.
From the FDR library collection, it highlighted: -1925 Army War Department report -1941 Army brochure on commanding “Negroes” -Col. Anderson & Eleanor Roosevelt photo -Tuskegee Airmen song from the Tuskegee Airmen DVD -Clips of interview with the airmen
This presentation was done through Zoom and streamed on the library's Facebook page This was the second virtual presentation we had by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library--they do an excellent job! In December, we also hosted Christmas with the Roosevelts.
