The Woodridge Library has a great line up of events for Black History Month, including a movie series. One event we found to be particularly exciting will take place on Thursday February 15, 2018 at 7:00. Dr. Daniel Haulman, author of “The Tuskegee Airmen Chronology”will be speaking. From the event page:
The Tuskegee Airmen Chronology: A Detailed Timeline of the Red Tails and Other Black Pilots of World War II provides 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 United States and their deployment overseas, first to North Africa and then to Sicily and Italy. The book is the fifth on the subject by Airmen expert Dr. Daniel Haulman. Come and meet Dr. Haulman and talk with some of the Tuskegee Airmen.
The Woodridge Library is located at 1801 Hamlin Street NE.
