T-7A Red Hawk

Tuskegee History Center
For nearly a quarter of a century the Tuskegee History Center has presented and preserved powerful stories about past triumphs and tragedies of Alabama’s Macon County, including its county seat – Tuskegee. Founded primarily as a permanent memorial to over 600 African American men betrayed by government and medical professionals during the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Study. The Center now, also takes visitors through generations of history and civil rights struggles, including spotlighting the heroic Tuskegee Airmen and the role they played as combat escort fighter pilots during World War II. Unique among local sites, the Center is also known as the Tuskegee Human and Civil Rights Multicultural Center. Social justice advocates are sure to appreciate the Center’s interactive exhibits, ‘history maker’ public programs, and seldom told truths that inform, educate, and inspire.
