The issue of race in the military extends from colonial times to the present day. Join Active Minds as we explore a chapter of this story from World War II: the Tuskegee Airmen. This group of African American pilots were the first black military aviators in the U.S. armed forces. We will tell their story of struggle and triumph and bring this issue into a current context.
Free and open to the public. No registration required.
Our programs are presented by a variety of speakers from along the Front Range of Colorado and beyond. While subjects range from tartans to medieval art, they always focus on taking us away to the British Isles for a little culture and history. Free and open to the public. W.I.S.E.
"Using Early American Records to Tell the Story of a Pioneer"
- Presented by Diane Barbour
Using the life of Amasa Delano Sproat, we explore records that are available during the time-period before 1850 and the every name census. Usually a difficult period for genealogy research, the participant will learn what records are available and how to obtain them. This program will help with that early American research.
