We like to say we’re making tomorrow’s history today with the next generation. But, we don’t make the future without remembering the past. This is why, with the support of the Los Angeles Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc., we’ve created a public museum exhibit to continue the legacy of aviation pioneers within our community.On display at the museum are historic photos of the Tuskegee Airmen and Bessie Coleman, Vietnam War-era helicopters, a T-38 Talon used as a trainer for jet pilots, and experimental aircraft. There’s a little something for everyone.
The Tuskegee Airmen: A Living Museum
The Tuskegee Airmen is the popular name given to the first all-African-American fighter squadron. Through excellence and persistence, these brave aviators broke racial barriers in a segregated America, while fighting against Nazi aggression during World War II.
Their achievements paved the way for future minorities to become not just pilots, but to participate more fully in American society.
At TAM, we value and celebrate the Tuskegee Airmen as role models for our youth and as a constant reminder that we can achieve anything with dedication, hard work, and the right attitude.
