“First in Flight” program coming to the Toledo Public Library

Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald
Everyone is invited to join the African American Museum of Iowa and the Toledo Public Library for a presentation on the infamous Tuskegee Airmen on March 24, 6-7 p.m. The event will be held at the Toledo Public Library, 205 East High St.

“First in Flight” will portray the trials and tribulations of the nation’s first African American military pilots. Despite the belief that African Americans would not thrive in the Army Air Corps, they included some of the most decorated flyers of the war and have the reputation of never losing a bomber to enemy fire for the entire duration of the war.

“First in Flight” will follow a 4:00 children’s program, “Red Tails” about the Tuskegee Airmen.

All ages are welcome to attend this event, and admission is free. Contact the African American Museum of Iowa for more information: 319-862-2101 or
