93 Year Old Tuskegee Airmen Lt Col Alex Jefferson to Speak at Lewis & Clark College
Lt. Col. Alexander Jefferson, is a 93 year old retired US Air Force officer, and one of the famous “Tuskegee Airmen”, also known as the 332nd Fighter Group. During World War II, Black Americans throughout the U.S. were subject to Jim Crow laws which legalized segregation and the American military was also segregated. President Truman signed an executive order ending segregation in the military in 1948 (3 years after the war’s end). Lt. Col. Jefferson’s book, “Red Tail Captured, Red Tail Free: Memoirs of a Tuskegee Airman and POW”, is a personal memoir of those who served America in World War II and after.
Please join us for this very special opportunity. Lt Col Alexander Jefferson will speak from 7-8pm in the Chapel at Lewis & Clark College. A book-signing and reception will follow. The event is free and open to the public.

Change or Charity? Exploring the Potential Unintended Consequences of Doing Good
When many of us see individuals struggling or widespread social problems, we are compelled to intervene. What happens, however, when we don’t utilize a critical lens to examine the potential unintended consequences of our well-intentioned actions? This interactive workshop will interrogate the differences between charity and change. Together, we will develop best change practices for social justice advocates and activists.
