Friday, January 20

TODAY Lucasfilm, i.e. George "Star Wars" Lucas releases RED TAILS, the highly anticipated action-packed film based on the real-life heroics of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first all African American aerial combat unit.

This is a project of passion for George, a project he had to self-finance because major studies "did not know how to market it..." Despite the obstacles, what we now have is a GREAT INSPIRATIONAL FILM. And -- it appears RED TAILS has become the litmus test for big budget films featuring an African American cast.

SUPPORT RED TAILS at the Box Office, especially during this critical opening weekend. This will prove a point to Hollywood, provide a pathway for future films of this type, inspire our youth, and most importantly expose the world to the untold story of the Tuskegee Airmen, some of our nation's greatest wartime heroes.
