The Tuskegee Airmen (film screening)
The Tuskegee Airmen (PG-13, 106 minutes) will be shown on Sunday, February 2, 2014, 2 p.m. - 5 p.m., at the West Las Vegas Library, 951 W. Lake Mead Blvd. During World War II, the U.S. Army Air Corps began a program to integrate African-American pilots into the Fighter Pilot Program. Known as the “Tuskegee Airmen,” these men were forced to endure harassment and prejudice. This screening of The Tuskegee Airmen is part of the Blacks in Hollywood and Film Screenings Series. Distinguished military personnel will moderate this screening and featured panelists include Colonel (Ret.) Harold A. Archibald and Nate Bynum, professional actor and professor of theatre at UNLV. Join us as we educate and enlighten attendees about African Americans as professional artists in film and other arts fields, past and present. This series will provide an opportunity for hands-on participation. All ages are welcome. This event is co-sponsored by the Las Vegas Chapter of the Links, Inc. Guest speakers are subject to change without notice. Free and open to the public. For more information, please call 702.507.3989.
