Haskell Deaton's Flying Circus

Record #:
In the mid-1940s, entertainment in Charlotte was almost entirely segregated. But the owner of Plaza Airport, named Haskell Deaton, organized an air show specifically for African American spectators to attend, though all were welcome. Pilots Charlie Foxx and Charlie Flowers, members of the celebrated Tuskegee Airmen, all African American, flew in the show.
