Tuskegee Airmen & John Hope Franklin @The National Archives Experience

The National Archives is hosting two great events in honor of Black History Month this week.

A panel discussion and film screening celebrating the achievements of America’s first African-American military airmen.

Moderated by Dr. Rex M. Ellis, associate director of curatorial affairs, Smithsonian Museum of African-American History and Culture, the discussion is scheduled to include Lt. Gen. (ret.) Russell C. Davis, current president of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc., and several surviving members of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Also part of the program will be a screening of Wings for This Man, an 11-minute film produced in 1944 by the Army Air Forces and narrated by Ronald Reagan.
