African-Americans in Aviation

African-Americans in Aviation: Then and Now

Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012, Minnesota History Center
1 to 2:30 p.m., Free
In honor of Black History Month, we celebrate African Americans in aviation. This panel discussion will offer personal aviation stories of success, triumphs and defeat from Woodson M. Fountain, Northwest Airlines’ first African-American pilot; and Mamie Langford Singleton, Youth Initiative Aviation Academy's Executive Director. Update: Due to weather, Maj. Joe Gomer will be unable to join us in person, but he will be joining us by phone.
We will offer a live webcast of the program on this website. 
The program is presented by the Minnesota History Center and the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
