Vintage Visions Veterans Day Program

On Thursday, November 11, 2010 the Prince George's African American Museum and Cultural Center organized a public program in recognition of the servicemen and women from our community. The event included a conversation with active duty servicemen and veterans, including Melvin Cooper, President -- Society for the Preservation of Black Aviation History, Inc., and William Broadwater, Tuskegee Airman (US Army, WWII). The program was also highlighted by a screening of the film 'The Tuskegee Airmen' (1995). In attendance were Curator Jon West-Bey (who also served as moderator of the panel discussion), and Board Chair Hon. Lillian K. Beverley. For more information on the program itself, please visit our Vintage Visions exhibitions page.
