Black History Month Celebrated at M.S. 256Q @ 43

On Friday February 27, our school had the honor to play host to the Tuskegee Airmen. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African American Military Airmen. Each man possessed a strong personal desire to the United States of America in a time in history when African Americans were not considered patriotic.

The single and multi-engine pilots were trained at Tuskegee Army Air Field in Tuskegee, Alabama. These airmen not only endured battle during wartime, but they were subjected to racism both at home and overseas. It was a privilege and honor to have Mr. Julius Freedman, orchard G. Braithwaite and Mr. Bill Samber, accomplished airmen who fought in World War II, as our guests at M.S. 256Q @ 43 in Far Rockaway. They shared with students, their struggles and victories. As always we have the full support of our principle and leader, Oswaldo Roman.
