COMING SOON to the Keller Gallery - Black Wings

Here's a peek at one of the photos featured in the Smithsonian traveling exhibition Black Wings: American Dreams of Flight. It opens in the Keller Gallery on February 7 with a FREE opening reception from 6:00 tp 7:30 PM.

The exhibition is sponsored nationally by the MetLife Foundation and locally by the Timken Company Charitable and Educational Fund.

I'll share more about the exhibit in the coming days and weeks!

The Tuskegee Airmen, 1944

The extraordinary works of the Tuskegee Airmen caused the black press to publicize not only their achievements, but those of other black servicemen. The press they both received led many to call for the end of racial segregation in American society.
