OLLI at Auburn Hosts Wisdom Wednesday’s Lecture Series Guest Daniel Haulman
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Auburn University (OLLI at Auburn) will host its lecture series entitled Wisdom Wednesday’s on February 28, 2018 from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art located at 901 South College Street, Auburn, Alabama 36830. OLLI members, guests and friends are all invited to learn more about OLLI at Auburn course offerings, social engagements and initiatives.
This week’s guest will feature Daniel Haulman military historian and author of “The Tuskegee Airmen Chronology”. The story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American pilots in American military service, is a complex tapestry with many story threads, such as the training story, the 99th Fighter Squadron story, the 332d Fighter Group Red Tail story, and the 477th Bombardment Group story. One story did not end when another began. The stories proceeded simultaneously. For example, while some Tuskegee Airmen were learning to fly at Tuskegee, others were flying combat missions overseas, while still others were being arrested for resisting segregation at another base. This Tuskegee Airmen Chronology links the stories together, filling a crucial historiographical niche.
OLLI at Auburn is a program of the Office of the Vice President for University Outreach at Auburn University. OLLI administrative offices and select classes are located at the historic Sunny Slope property, 1031 South College Street, Auburn, Alabama.
