Lt. Col. Harold Brown, a retired Tuskegee Airman, will tell his World War II story during a free, public presentation at Winebrenner Theological Seminary’s TLB Auditorium on Monday, April 23, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The presentation will begin with a brief film showcasing Lt. Col. Brown’s story, followed by a question-and-answer session with audience members.
Lt. Col. Brown graduated from Tuskegee in May 1944, and was assigned to the 332nd Fighter Group. He flew 30 missions as a bomber-escort fighter pilot before being shot down on a strafing mission. He was then captured, became a German prisoner of war and was liberated by Gen. George Patton’s forces in 1945.
He and co-author Marsha S. Bordner will sign and sell copies of their book, “Keep Your Airspeed Up: The Story of a Tuskegee Airman.”
