RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit comes to Commemorative Air Force Headquarters

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) will bring its RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit back to Dallas for a free Black History Month program February 6-17, 2017. The CAF invites area schools, churches and civic groups to a free field trip that will provides students with an opportunity to learn about and be inspired by the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first African-American military pilots and their support personnel.


The RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is a mobile movie theater operated by the CAF’s Red Tail Squadron, America’s tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen. It features a unique large-format curved screen theater allows students to experience the original 30-minute film, “Rise Above,” in an immersive setting. The film tells the inspirational story of the Tuskegee Airmen and their struggle for civil rights and equality. It also gives viewers the exciting sensation of flying in a rebuilt P-51C Mustang, the signature aircraft of the Tuskegee Airmen.

While emphasizing the valuable life lessons of the Tuskegee Airmen, the program will include goal-setting activities designed to help young people create a path to success while articulating their life goals. Students will also get “hands-on” with history, handling artifacts from World War II. Various veterans including decorated Vietnam veteran and noted actor Willie Minor and others will be onsite during selected hours to meet with students and share their experiences.

Space is limited for this free event and is booked by reservation only. Contact Tracy Smith at the CAF at (580) 786-6251 or tsmith@cafhq.org to schedule your school, community group or youth organization.
