During our 3rd annual Black History Month events at the CAF National Airbase, students from local Southern Dallas schools were onsite to practice their photography skills while being inspired by the lessons of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Check out some of their artwork!

Each year, the CAF Red Tail Squadron along with members of the CAF Education team located at CAF headquarters put on a month-long event for local area students, inviting schools and community groups to come to the CAF hangar for a multitude of fun activities. The RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is a featured attraction, along with several other opportunities to learn about and be inspired by the Tuskegee Airmen.

Cheers to these students for their effort and artistic vision. We look forward to more fun and meaningful events at the CAF headquarters in Dallas!

 

The CAF Red Tail Squadron is a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Learn more at www.redtail.org.
