and P51 Mustang!

We are thrilled to announce that at the 2022 1940s Ball we will be featuring the National Tuskegee Airmen traveling exhibit: Rise Above, Red Tail!

This incredible exhibit, by the Commemorative Air Force, is honoring the history and legacy of America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel, including a P51 Mustang, one of the planes the Tuskegee Airmen flew in WWII!  The exhibit “is on a mission to educate people of all ages about these important American icons so their strength of character and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to rise above obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.”

“We invite you to take a deeper dive to learn more about the remarkable Tuskegee Airmen, and be inspired to tap into the ability within yourself to overcome barriers and find success.”
