The Chennault Aviation and Military Museum and The Northeast Louisiana Delta African American Museum have partnered to bring a historic event to our community, “An Evening with the General.” Major General James T. Whitehead will present his inspiring story of determination and success as the first African American Lockheed U-2 pilot. General Whitehead broke down numerous barriers during his military career. The evening will kick-off Veteran’s Day weekend at the African American Museum. The public is invited to attend, as both museums unite to tell this American story of triumph. Tickets will include complimentary spirits and heavy hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants at the opening reception before the speaking event. Award-winning party DJ and radio host, Rob Lloyd, will provide jazz entertainment for guests during the reception.
