Local Tuskegee Airman Calvin Moret and UNO Professor Nikki Brown to speak at National WWII Museum

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

M E D I A A L E R T
Local Tuskegee Airman Calvin Moret and UNO Professor Nikki Brown to speak at National WWII Museum

WHAT: The last surviving New Orleans member of the Tuskegee Airmen, Calvin Moret, will relate his experiences in discussion with UNO Professor Nikki Brown during a lecture at The National WWII Museum. The program is free and open to the public and is being offered in partnership with the University of New Orleans History Department.

New Orleans native Calvin Moret served in the Army Air Corps 99th Fighter Squadron. He trained to fly P-40s in preparation for deployment in Europe, but the fighting in Europe ended four days before his group was to embark. His class then trained in P-47s for service in the Pacific theater, but again the fighting ended. Moret trained at the Tuskegee Institute from 1943 to 1944, and was commissioned as a flight officer in November of 1944. In 2007, he received the Congressional Gold Medal.

WHO: Calvin Moret, Tuskegee Airman
Nikki Brown, Assistant Professor of History at University of New Orleans
