The stories, photos, and other memorabilia that capture the daring and skill of the determined young African American pilots known as the Tuskegee Airman who served valiantly in World War II, have recently found a home at Temple University. To preserve their rich legacy and mark Black History Month, the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. donated its archives to the university's Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection. Plan on visiting this world-class display.
