Film Screening: The Tuskegee Airmen

Film Screening: The Tuskegee Airmen
Thursday, November 30, 2017 | 6:30 p.m. at the Museum

Join us for a screening of the 1995 HBO Film The Tuskegee Airmen starring Laurence Fishburne.

It is 1943 and the Germans are winning the Second World War as the U.S. suffers huge losses on the ground and in the air. Four newly recruited pilots are united by a desire to serve their country at time when black flyers are not welcomed in the Air Force. The men they call "The Tuskegee Airmen" must undertake the riskiest mission of their lives to prove to America that courage knows no color. Their success could earn them respect, save lives and help win a terrible war. Their failure could destroy more hopes and dreams than their own.

Rated PG-13. Run time: 106 minutes.

Free. RSVP required through Eventbrite.
