“THE TEST” Tuskegee Project
June 14, 2012
to 5 PM
150 Airport Drive , Tyler, TX
CONTINUES DAILY, EXCEPT MONDAY, THROUGH JULY 31. Historic Aviation Memorial Museum
"THE TEST" is an 8 week exhibition about the first African-Ameican aviators in the U.S. Military in combat in World War Two.
The aviators were part of an effort by the War Department to determine if African-Americans had the capabilities to be effective combat aviators. The outcome of this test would impact the future opportunities of African-Americans in and outside of the military. The exhibition sets the stage for the telling of the story by providing information on racial relations in America before World War Two and African-American involvement in early aviation.
Photographs, carefully researched depiction of events, models, maps and graphics, are used to present and to inform visitors about the men, the aircraft they flew and flew against, and the operations in which they participated. A section of the exhibition is dedicated to those that served with the 99TH FS and the 332ND FG or were involved with the "Tuskegee Project".
