Literacy for Texas welcomes Author and Professor Duchess Harris of ABDO educational publishing, with Special Guest Gai Spann, daughter of pilot Calvin Spann, for a special live visit and Q&A.
History is shaped by people who work for change. Throughout history, those who have faced discrimination have made significant accomplishments while fighting to secure their rights. Some of these achievements have become well known, while others have not.
Join Literacy for Texas and hear the story of Calvin Spann, the daring World War II fighter pilot who soared in the face of US military segregation as he fought with the African American flying force, the Tuskegee Airmen.
Author Duchess Harris and Daughter Gai Spann examine and explore Spann's life and legacy, while reviewing how his story is captured in ABDO's "Freedom's Promise" collection.
