Tuskegee Airmen Exhibit and "Imagine Norcross" Open During October at Norcross Welcome Center
Arts & Culture

Atlanta, GA--  Two terrific and quite diverse exhibits are open now through October 29th at the Norcross Welcome Center.

“Imagine Norcross” - Explore Historic Norcross through the eyes and camera lens of a resident journalist, Charles Harbin, whose photo essay captures a beautiful and unexpected perspective of the community.

"The Tuskegee Airmen: The Segregated Skies of World War II" is a traveling exhibit on loan from Kennesaw University. It explores the history and heroism of the first African-American pilots to fly in combat during World War II. They were known as “Tuskegee Airmen” because they trained to fly at Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama; however, members of the American fighter group came from as far away as Spain and Haiti, and others from as close to home as Buford, Clarksville and Atlanta. The exhibit tells the exciting story of what drove these men to prove themselves in war, why they earned the Congressional Gold Medal and how their heroism impacted generations of Americans.

Both exhibits are currently available at The Norcross Welcome Center until October 29th.
