The Tuskeegee Airmen: Presented by the Veterans Speakers Forum at the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach

Everyone at Century Village is invited to join us at the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach (formerly the West Palm Beach Public Library) for a special program presented by World War II veteran Corporal Burt Richards, founder of the Veterans Speakers Forum. Corporal Richards and Lieutenant Col. Richard Hall will discuss the history of the exciting Tuskegee Airmen. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African- American aviators to serve with the Army Air Force in World War II. The presentation will include a film documentary highlighting interviews with the actual fighter pilots and heroes who fought. Corporal Richards states, "Never mind the Hollywood films. We have the real pilots, not actors." 

Corporal Richards was awarded the American Red Cross Community Courage Award and spearheaded the campaign to close Palm Beach County schools in remembrance of Veterans Day. All are welcome to attend this free, educational program.  The event will be held in the library's Auditorium, 3rd floor. For more information call the library at 561-868-7701 or visit
