*Lucasfilm, the company behind film “Red Tails,” is encouraging folks to honor the Tuskegee Airmen on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, by launching an educational curriculum guide for grades 6-12, a social media campaign, and making the documentary “Double Victory: The Tuskegee Airmen at War” permanently available on its website.

Additionally, Lucasfilm will be adding written profiles on Tuskegee pilots, nurses, and ground personnel to its website leading up to Veterans Day. And for the month of November, it’s offering “Red Tails” for free on Disney+.

Lucasfilm also released “Celebrate the Tuskegee Airmen,” a reel narrated by “Red Tails” star Leslie Odom Jr., which spotlights the Airmen’s story and legacy.

The 90 min. “Double Victory: The Tuskegee Airmen at War” and 4 min. “Celebrate the Tuskegee Airmen” are available to watch below.

Below, late Tuskegee Airman Roscoe Brown talks about being an on-set advisor to the cast of “Red Tails” to ensure they nailed the swagger and other details of the original Airmen.
