Tuskegee Airmen Exhibit Arrives in St. Cloud [AUDIO]

Abby Faulkner

ST. CLOUD – Today is certainly a day for honoring those who have served our country. With this in mind, a traveling film exhibit on the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and crews, has landed in St. Cloud.

The decorative trailer, featuring an illustrated P51-C Mustang fighter plane, is easy to spot; it’s currently parked outside of St. Cloud City Hall inside a customized trailer.

Terry Hollis manages the traveling exhibit. He says the story of the Tuskegee Airmen isn’t taught often enough, and the goal of the tour is to educate and inspire guests with their history.

The exhibit is free and each film screening seats 35.  You can stop by and catch it any time between noon and 7 p.m. until Saturday.

The exhibit has been made possible through a partnership between St. Cloud State University and the City of St. Cloud.

Also, if you’d like to catch a speech by former Tuskegee Airman James Cooper, you can – his talk is being streamed live on Tuesday night from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Cascade Room in SCSU’s Atwood Memorial Center.
