Tuskeegee Airmen and Chinese-Canadian war vets

Hear the unique and historical stories from two distinguished war-time veterans’ groups from the US and Canada. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces and faced discrimination within the military and as civilians. In Canada, Chinese-Canadian war vets faced similar societal problems of non-acceptance. Representatives from both groups will come together for this opening symposium to share their personal stories of dedication, courage and acceptance. Note: this is the first of five community events leading into the Canada Day long weekend. Learn more about this event and find out about other events in this historic summit.
