Last fall, CAF’s Red Tail Squadron, which aims to educate the general public about the struggles and successes of the Tuskegee Airmen and inspire the youth to overcome obstacles, launched a virtual museum. A component of the Red Tail Squadron’s website, the virtual museum features artifacts, images and memorabilia supplied by Tuskegee Airmen and other enthusiasts.
“Our work started out with one airplane, meticulously restored to be able to educate people about the Tuskegee Airmen,” said the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s marketing director LaVone Kay. “Through perseverance and the goodwill of our supporters, our message of inspiration has flourished far beyond our humble beginnings. The virtual museum is another tool we’ve facilitated to honor this important piece of black history, and inspire people with the incredible story of the Tuskegee Airmen.”
