In an ongoing effort to build community self-esteem and provide positive images for young African American and other youth, the Silent war along with its community partners will be taking 200 youth ages 13-17 to see Red Tails this upcoming weekend.
Red Tails is the story of a crew of African American pilots in the Tuskegee training program, having faced segregation while kept mostly on the ground during World War II, are called into duty under the guidance of Col. A.J. Bullard
Along with DJ Kun Luv, the Silent war will be working with Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seaspot Media Group, Presidential Transportation, Langston Hughes African American Film Festival and dozens of youth workers and community members to make this happen. BlackPast.org will also made historical information available as a companion piece. Through a program with AMC theaters, discounted tickets of $7.50 per person have been made available and we are asking for donations of $15.00 (2 Youth) or $30 (4 Youth).
