The subject of the next Friends of the Library meeting is the book Freedom Flyers: The Tuskegee Airmen of World War II on Friday, March 25, 2011, at 7:30pm in the UT Arlington Central Library sixth floor parlor.
This book traces the history of the Tuskegee Airmen in WWII. They were the first African American military pilots. The program will be jointly sponsored by the UTA African American Faculty and Staff Association.
