Re: “Red Tails

Greeting All,

Aviate Through Knowledge is inviting you out to support the movie event this weekend. Mr. Crenchaw and I, personally invite you, your families and professional staff. The new Tuskegee Airmen movie Red Tails is premiering this upcoming weekend. The Rave Motion Pictures Cinemas in Little Rock is hosting the movie event. The event will be historic as Milton P. Crenchaw gives an introduction to this movie, in the wake of a new book featuring some Red Tails from the Natural State. This book will be available before the end of Black History Month 2012. We hope that you can view this movie and support this book while helping the state to re-invest in our country' military and civilian history with regards to these Arkansan aviators, both in the civilian and military sectors. Only a few today know first-hand, the true nature and culture of what these pilots witnessed. You are welcome to this historic movie event!

Mr. Milton P. Crenchaw is the original inspiration behind the book, PIONEERING AFRICAN-AMERICAN AVIATORS: FEATURING THE TUSKEGEE AIRMEN OF ARKANSAS slated to be released February 2012. This book contains trailblazing military and civilian facts about Crenchaw as well as other aviators from the Natural State. It would be a great contribution to your personal libraries, novelty shops, lunch rooms, or a great gift for anyone. The extra contents of this book consists of a photo gallery, lists of documented and undocumented pilots, a website source study guide list and a Arkansas Tuskegee Airmen quiz.

Mr. Crenchaw is not the only living Tuskegee Airmen, but he is the country’s last living original Supervising Squadron Commander that taught the Tuskegee Airmen. His legacy is not that of a Red Tail, but as one of their Instructors. The extra blessing here is that, he is still with us today! The Tuskegee Airmen are becoming a dying generation. The upcoming movie titled Red Tails will be introduced by Mr. Crenchaw when it premiers on Jan. 20th, 2012 at the Little Rock Rave Motion Pictures for the 7:15pm & 7:45 pm shows. This generally normal movie night, will be anything, but normal with a living Tuskegee airmen in the crowd and speaking briefly about his role as one of their Instructors. There will also be free Meet-and-Greet at the Rave on this night after the movies. If you wish to attend this event, please visit the website below or contact me. There will also be a display table for the Arkansas Tuskegee Airmen exhibit, aviation materials, cake, beverages and snacks. The website below is the official Red Tails link.

Thank you and remember that the book, this movie and Milton Crenchaw, all represent an American History story that portrays true ground-breakers in the sky. Let’s honor Mr. Crenchaw and recognize him while he still lives. This could be another opportunity to help enhance our state, region, and communities with history, living history, entertainment and fun. Inspire your contemporaries to come out to see this George Lucas classic. We hope to see you at the movie. Thanks

Edmond Davis, Founder of Aviate Through Knowledge Productions
