Aviation history chronicles through Christmas Day exhibition

December 23, 2013 by  

Opening on Christmas Day, the ‘Black Wings: American Dreams of Flight’ exhibition will recount the African American’s history in flight from the early 1920s through to the 21st Century. This is being presented by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The museum might have used banner printing and flyer printing to share the information about this exhibition with people in the area.

Through this exhibition, the history of African Americans in flight can be traced back to the days of barnstormers right up until the present day. The exhibit was developed by the National Air and Space Museum’s curator, Von Hardesty, who is a noted scholar. As part of this exhibition, there is a moving collection of contemporary and historical photographs, personal interviews, artifacts, and some stories that offer an overview of the saga. This collection examines some of the most important aviators from the past up to the present who dreamed of having careers in the flight and space exploration industries.

The cost is $8 per adult, $7 per senior, $5 for people aged 10 to 17, and children under 10 are free when accompanied by an adult. Museum members are also free.

The exhibition will be opening on Wednesday, December 25, from 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm at The Haggin Museum located at 1201 North Pershing Avenue in Stockton, California. To find out more about what can be expected at the display, please visit museum’s website or call its office during business hours.
