Event Description

The Chamber invites you to join us for the screening of Red Tails.

The screening will provide an opportunity to hear members of the famed Tuskegee Airmen speak on their experiences before we view the movie.

The airmen served at a time when the military was notably segregated, and discrimination rampant nationwide. Despite the lack of support from their fellow countrymen, about 995 Black pilots graduated from a military flight school in Tuskegee, Ala., from 1942 to 1946.

About the Movie:
1944. As the war in Europe continues to take its toll on Allied forces, the Pentagon brass has no recourse but to consider unorthodox options - including the untried and untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country - and the fate of the free world.
