The theme of the 8th Annual UCR Tuskegee Airmen Celebration will be “Tuskegee Airmen: Heroes at Ramitelli” in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen who were the first African Americans to engage as fighter pilots during World War II. The Tuskegee Airmen achieved an exceptional record of U.S. bomber protection against enemy aircraft in the European Theatre during the war. The celebration will further tell the story explored in the George Lucas film released this year, "Red Tails.” The program will bring together some of the Tuskegee Airmen and the white bomber pilots whom they escorted to tell their mutual stories. The event is free and open to the public, but due to limited seating, a reservation is required. Campus parking costs apply.
