Former Tuskegee Airman Julius Freeman Former Tuskegee Airman Julius Freeman The Tuskegee Airmen, the U.S military’s first

African-American aviators served, with distinction in

World War II and earned their place in history.

On Thursday, February 27th, the Nassau County

Section of the National Council of Negro Women will host “A Night of Black History” with special guest of honor, former Tuskegee Airman Julius Freeman.

The night will feature a wealth of history lessons learned through poetry, storytelling, and experience. Guests will “get a chance to meet and greet not only an American hero whose experiences were shared in the movie “Red Tails,” organizers say, “but also a pillar in the community who changed history.”

Admission is free. The event will take place between 7 and 9 p.m. at the Five Towns Community Center, located at 270 Lawrence Avenue in Lawrence.

The Tuskegee Airmen formed the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group of the US Army Air Corps, the forerunner of the United States Air Force.
