Ron Spriggs, curator for a traveling Tuskegee Airmen exhibit, will speak at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at UND’s Clifford Hall Auditorium.

The Ron Springs Exhibit of Tuskegee Airmen was founded in 2002 in Kentucky as a way to tell the story behind the Tuskegee Airmen, an all African-American squadron based in Alabama in 1941. The Tuskegee Airmen included pilots, navigators, and bombardiers who became one of the most highly-respected fighter groups of World War II.

The event is part of UND’s celebration of Black History Month in February.
