Diane Shields: The Tuskegee Airmen
Monday, May 1
11 a.m. to Noon
Historian Diane Shields offers a look at the Tuskegee Airmen, the first Black military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps (AAC), a precursor of the U.S. Air Force. Trained at the Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama, they flew more than 15,000 individual sorties in Europe and North Africa during World War II. Their impressive performance earned them more than 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and helped encourage the eventual integration of the U.S. armed forces.

Heroes: Fathers & Sons
Tuesday, May 30
11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.
Presented by UC Graduate Student, Cecilia Cozzi
Greek mythology features a gallery of “heroes.” When we think of heroes, we imagine individuals selflessly devoted to protect humanity against its bitter enemies. Ancient heroes are different: they are ambitious men, eager to prove their worth by embarking on adventurous quests. Each hero starts as someone’s son, but he quickly needs to forge his own path and reinforce the good name of his family. The challenge is huge and appears often in Greek myth. We will take you to the Iliad and the Odyssey and we will focus on the stories of ancient heroes you are most interested in: Ajax, Achilles, Agamemnon, but also Odysseus, Aeneas and Hector. Despite their differences, they are all left with the same dilemma: looking to their noble past but also glancing toward their unknown future.
