ONE HOUR TELEVSION SPECIAL LANDING IN BALTIMORE ON WBAL-TV NBC Sunday, February 19, 1pm – 2pm
AUGUSTA, GA – Bryton Entertainment and Syndicator Sewee Entertainment is proud to present “In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – The One Hour Special” through Nationwide Affiliate Broadcast on U.S. television for the first time ever beginning January 14, 2017 and continuing throughout the country until February 26, 2017. The one-hour special will air this Sunday, February 19, 1 pm – 2 pm, in Baltimore on WBAL-TV.
This television event features emotional interviews, rare photographs, archival footage and computer-generated recreations.
Sixteen of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first African-American military aviators who flew the skies of the European Theater during World War II, are featured in this powerful television special. As African Americans were rejected in their attempts to enlist in World War I, the recruitment, training and combat of the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II was a monumental moment not only in American military history, but also in American history as a whole.
“In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen – The One Hour Special” tells the story of how these airmen were some of the first to begin the civil rights movement and have lived long enough to see the changes that continue to resonate today.
“In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen takes me back to my childhood. These Airmen broke through adversity and made a new country for us all. They were passionate, driven and unwavering in their quest to do the best they knew how and this story covers it all. Thank you for doing this!”
Multi-Platinum Singer Songwriter
“The enthusiasm in which the few remaining Tuskegee Airmen reacted to this news has been nothing short of fulfilling. These brave men made one request of us upon lending their story, ‘Never let our story die!’ We are thrilled to honor that request beginning January 14 and through February 26, on tv around our great country,” said Bryan Williams of Bryton Entertainment, LLC.
