As part of our observance of Black History Month, the HFC Council of World Cultures presents: “The History of the Tuskegee Airmen: Their Contributions to the Military and Society” on Thursday, Feb. 10, from 11:00 a.m. to noon. This is a free, virtual event. All are welcome.

The keynote speaker will be Retired Major William Burnett, the founder and president of the Macon-Thomas West Bloomfield Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen. Its mission is to educate people about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen – America’s first Black pilots and airmen who served in the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II. Their strength of character, courage, and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to rise above the obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.

Before the Tuskegee Airmen, no African-American had ever been a U.S. military pilot.
