Ron Spriggs, a speaker and oral historian of the Tuskegee Airmen, offers year-round speaking engagements for school assemblies of up to 500 students per session.
Spriggs focuses on two main areas that parallel the national Tuskegee Airmen organization: sustaining the legacy and history of the airmen through student lectures, speaking engagements and exhibitions; and creating programs and experiences for students to develop their knowledge about careers in aviation or their general academic studies. The Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American military pilots who fought in World War II, were the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. armed forces.
