Housed in a 53’ long semi-rig, the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit contains a 30-seat temperature-controlled movie theater with a 160-degree panoramic screen. The 30-minute RISE ABOVE movie shown highlights who the Tuskegee Airmen are, how they overcame obstacles to be allowed to train and fight as U.S. Army Air Corps pilots. Also how more than 14,000 other black men and women also trained hard to support the pilots, and what the courage and determination they exhibited then still means to all Americans today.

The exhibit is free of charge and is open to youth groups, state employees and the general public. Please make reservations for groups of 5-35, the movie will be shown every hour. Reservations have priority, walk-up are welcome, smaller groups and individual showings will be shown 40 minutes after the hour. ie: 9:40, 10:40, ect...

Dr. Harold Brown, (Lt. Col. USAF Ret.) an original Tuskegee Airman originally from Minnesota, will be at the Exhibit on Saturday.
