Red Tails Movie

Posted by on 01/09/2012

Red Tails the movie premiers on January 20, 2012. George Lucas who changed how we looked at the universe with Star Wars and how we looked at history with Indiana Jones is bringing us what promises to be an extraordinary film depiction of an important group of Americans Heroes – the Tuskegee Airmen. As a nation we were fighting World War II, but as a people we were a segregated society. These pilots and crew play a key role in our victory, and are part of the ‘Greatest Generation’ of our nation. Over the years, I have had the honor to spend time with several of these men.

The Tuskegee Airmen are personally responsible for advancing civil rights and launching an end to segregation. Their place in history will now be told on the big screen with some of Hollywood’s finest in leading roles. Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Bryan Cranston, David Oyelowo, Gerald McRaney, Daniela Ruah, Michael B. Jordan, Theo James, and Rick Otto are just a few of this incredible cast.

I do not often ask folks to go to the movies, but this movie is too important to be missed. Please join me in being among the first to see Red Tails when it comes to a theater near you. I want us to show our support for Hollywood bringing us a quality movie about an important time in our history.

Please share your thoughts and feedback about Red Tails and the great men and women of Tuskegee below. I’d love to hear from you.

    Hello Danion, Thanks so much for the heads up on a this movie. If I am going to spend my time and money I want to not squander it. I served in the Navy in the early years of Vietnam. We were just struggling out of a segregated military. Many great memories and storys.

    I have followed your story from the very beginning. I have always been excited about the “Centers.” I recently retired to the country and then last year I bought six cabins next door to my retirement property. Mostly I bought this to have some control over who rented there. But I have always had a dream of being part of a healing community.

    If you have anyone on your staff who would be interested in contacting me about this 31/2 acre property adjoining my 51/2 acre retirement homestead, I would be honored to see if we could make MN part of your wonderful work. Love and many blessings on you and all you do to fill this world with love, John

    Hello Danion – I met you a several yrs ago at the Agape Revelation Conference. I love your work! This movie was great! What honorable and courageous men! What a time to live in pure racism yet they overcame so many obstacles and had the best flight war record in history of WWII. What a great film and kudos to George Lucas for funding this film when all the studios declined funding or distributing it! It’s an American story all should see. I’m glad it did #2 in the box office. I know this was close to home for you, since you have worked with so many veterans. God bless you and I wish you much continued success!

    I was friends with a Navajo WWII vet. He is gone now. But he would talk about how he was accidentally placed in an all white group within the Army Air Forces. He was a mechanic. He would explain how all the Native people were supposed to be together. Consequently he was called Chief for the duration.
