Tuskegee Airmen

Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

This Thursday we have a very special edition of Route 51 as we welcome two of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen- Virgil Poole and Dr. Welton Taylor, for an hour of in depth conversation on their service to our country in World War II, and their roles in overcoming the ugly racial stereotypes of the time. Mr. Poole and Dr. Taylor will talk about their service in the 332nd Fighter Group, which became the inspiration for the hit George Lucas movie “Red Tails.” Mr. Poole and Dr. Taylor are appearing Wednesday evening at the Edgar High School Auditorium, and Thursday evening at the American Legion in Wausau.
