Smithsonian Channel "Black Wings" Film Screening

Saturday, February 11, 2023

Join the College Park Aviation Museum before or after the Black Aviators Tour for a film that ties our local history into national history. For early aviators, conquering the forces of gravity was a daunting challenge. But Black aviators had an additional challenge – conquering the forces of racism. Meet the men and women who took to the skies throughout the 20th century, proving to a segregated nation that skin color doesn’t determine skill level. From biplanes to commercial jets, and from barnstormers to war fighters, meet the path-breaking pilots who opened the skies for all –and contributed countless ways to aviation development.

Registration is NOT required.
