Tuskegee Airmen Presentation

Tuskegee Airmen Presentation

The Francis A. Gregory Library welcomed George Norfleet on February 28. This was the final black history program for the branch. Norfleet is a local author who lives in the Hillcrest community of Washington, D.C. He is the author of A Pilot's Journey: Memoirs of a Tuskegee Airman Curtis Christopher Robinson. Curtis C. Robinson was also a resident of the Hillcrest Community and an American hero. Pilot's Journey talks about Robinson's life as a Tuskegee Airman.

Norfleet did a wonderful presentation about the life of Robinson and the history of the Tuskegee Airmen. The patrons enjoyed the presentation and had many interesting questions afterward.
