The African American in Aviation Traveling Museum highlights the achievements of African-American aviators and their place in history.

Chauncey Spencer II, founded and created the African Americans in Aviation Museum with the singular mission to educate and inspire young people and create a bridge for them to learn about aviation history and the significant roles African Americans played in aviation.

The exhibit focuses primarily on the story of Spencer’s father, Chauncey Spencer along with Dale White. Spencer Sr. was instrumental in President Truman’s decision to include African Americans in the Army Air Corps. And both Chauncey Sr. and White were key to the creation of the Tuskegee Airman and Red Tails. The exhibit also highlights other trailblazing aviators such as Bessie Coleman, John C. Robinson and others. The panoramic tour of images, timelines and stories of bravery will be on display April 5-7. The exhibit is free with a general admission ticket.

This program is supported by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
