Emmy Award-winning news anchor David Ushery will lead a discussion between Tuskegee Airman Roscoe Brown, USS Mason crewmember Lorenzo DuFau and Pearl Harbor survivor Clark Simmons about their experiences as African Americans serving in our nation’s segregated armed forces during WWII.  

The battles of World War II were fought on two separate fronts in the European and Pacific Theatres. For the 125,000 African American soldiers who fought overseas, there was a 3rd front with which they had to contend - the prejudice back home. Despite large odds and against common reasoning of the times, black servicemen were able to distinguish themselves in the air, at sea and on land. The Intrepid Museum is proud to honor a few of these men as they share their personal stories in an evening dedicated to African Americans in WWII.

The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 5:30 PM; discussion begins at 6:00 PM. Advance reservations are required. Please RSVP at EducationEvents@intrepidmuseum.org

The panel is part of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s Memorial Day Weekend celebration, to be held from May 24 – May 28, 2013.
