Oct. 7


You are invited to see a 30 minute documentary film, "CHARLIE'S STORY, TUSKEGEE AND MORE" on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. at the Highlands University Trolley Building. There is no charge to attend the event but masks are required....Charlie Dorkins, a long-time friend shared with me in 2015, what it was like growing up as an African American during the Jim Crow period and World War II.  When he joined the Tuskegee Airmen at the beginning of the war, they were segregated from the White Air Force.  I feel it is a loss for all Americans that such an important part of our history has been ignored. And on that note, I welcome you to come and hear Charlie's story.  This film showing was canceled in May because of the fires and now I offer it again. A representative from the Santa Fe Chapter of the NAACP will be there to lead a discussion on Racism in the United States after the showing.
