Event Description

You have heard of the Tuskegee Airmen, but did you know other segregated African-American units bravely served their country in the face of discrimination? Historian and educator Howard Rosenberg will discuss the Triple Nickels (WWII Army Smokejumpers), the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion, and more in his fascinating lecture on the unsung heroes of our past.

This program will be presented as a Zoom meeting.  You can attend this program online or via telephone. The URL and phone number for the "meeting" will be emailed to all registrants upon completion of registration and also one hour prior to start time.
