From the FDR library collection, it highlights:
-1925 Army War Department report
-1941 Army brochure on commanding “Negroes”
-Col. Anderson & Eleanor Roosevelt photo
-Tuskegee Airmen song from the Tuskegee Airmen DVD
-Clips of interview with the airmen
This presentation is done through Zoom and streamed on the library’s Facebook page on Thursday, February 4 at 6:00.
