Two pilots from the legendary Tuskegee Airmen speak on a panel today to put a coda on Black History Month at UGA, which has also included a visit from Maya Angelou and many performances and lectures. Hillard W. Pouncey and R. Val Archer recount how their division helped to desegregate the whole army as the first African-American aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps. They speak at the UGA Chapel at 6:30. This event is free and open to the public.
