A new exhibit, set to open Thursday at Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum, will commemorate the valiant service of African American men and women during World War II. “EO 9981: Escaping Jim Crow,” which refers to President Harry S. Truman’s executive order that ended segregation in the U.S. Armed Forces, celebrates the contributions of African Americans such as the Tuskegee Airmen and others who served in segregated units during World War II, and tells the story of the integration of the Air Force in 1950, including Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery. The integration of these units allowed African American service members and civilians working on base to escape the Jim Crow laws. The exhibition is a collaborative effort of the Rosa Parks Museum, the National Museum of the US Air Force, Air University History Office and Air Force Historical Research Agency at Maxwell AFB, and Enlisted Heritage Hall at Gunter Annex.
