ALPHARETTA COMMUNITY GALLERY PRESENTS: THE TUSKEGEE AIRMEN: THE SEGREGATED SKIES OF WWII, A KENNESAW STATE TRAVELING EXHIBIT
“The Tuskegee Airmen” explores the history and heroism of the first African American pilots to fly in combat during World War II. Between 1941 and 1946, what became known as the “Tuskegee experiment” trained more than 1,000 pilots. Although required to train and fight in segregated units, the Tuskegee Airmen proved to be some of the most skilled aviators during the war. The undeniable courage and skill of these brave pilots contributed to the desegregation of the United States Armed Forces in 1948. This exhibit offers a look into the historical challenges and triumphs of these unsung American heroes.
Community Gallery is located inside Alpharetta City Hall beside the Alpharetta & Old Milton County History Museum.
Admission is free.
