Dinner With a Slice of History at Burke Lakefront Airport - Meet the First Female African-American Combat Intellegence Pilot
1

Join the International Women's Air & Space Museum as we welcome Dr. Sheila L. Chamberlain, the first African-American female combat intelligence pilot and the fifth to come through the U.S. Army flight school. Dr. Chamberlain served 15 years in the military, with active duty during the Granada/Panama invasion and the Persian Gulf War. She has come before various members of the Congressional House of Representatives Armed Services Committee to give information on why female pilots should be assigned to combat aviation units. Her story is one of passion, perseverance, motivation, and forgiveness.

Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. with presentation to follow. Tickets are $17 for IWASM members and $20 for non-members. Seats are limited.

The 2020 Dinner Series is made possible from the residents of Cuyahoga County through a grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
