Why you need to attend the documentary “In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen”.

Do you need a break from political debates, name-calling, and the questioning others’ patriotism? 

Remember that movie “Redtails” released in 2012?  A source of historical information for that movie was my friend’s documentary: “In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen”.  
Fathom Events will be screening the documentary nationwide for one night only, March 29, 2016 in 205 theaters in 48 cities across the USA.

Work on the documentary began in 2009 when director Denton Adkinson and producer Bryan Williams were sitting in a Huddle House in downtown Augusta, GA when they noticed an older, distinguished African-American veteran having breakfast.  The pair asked him of his service.  He told them he was a Tuskegee Airman.  Denton and Bryan were inspired and began a 3-year production that would eventually lead to receiving a letter of thanks from filmmaking icon George Lucas for their work on the documentary.

The documentary tells first-hand the stories of true heroes whose patriotism is inspirational.  For that reason, I’ll be in the theater on March 29th.  As a bonus, it was produced by my friends.
