“From Passenger to Pilot”
“The presentation focuses on the development of aviation in the 20th century through women who played significant roles. The first transcontinental passenger was a female reporter from Chicago, and the first stewardess flew on a noted Boeing bi-plane. In the 1920s and 30s Amelia Earhart was a popular pilot, famous for her attempt to fly around the world at the equator. Her friend, Jacqueline Cochran, was another famous pilot through the next two decades, setting speed records in military jet airplanes.”

Ms. Leslie Czechowski has a B.A. in Drama Theory, a M.S. in Library Science, and a M.S. in Liberal Studies (concentration in 19th century American history and literature). She has worked in a variety of library and archives positions at Grinnell College, The University of Minnesota, and The University of Pittsburgh. In addition, she taught graduate courses at The College of St. Catherine and The University of Pittsburgh. She has also authored many professional publications and presented on library and archival services.

Leslie has been a volunteer in numerous organizations and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Moldova in 2012. She currently volunteers at the Kent Library teaching Microsoft Office software, volunteers at the Museum’s archives, and joined the docent program at the Museum in 2016.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institutional_racism
Institutional racism was defined by Sir William Macpherson in the UK’s Lawrence report (1999) as: “The collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their colour, culture, or ethnic origin. It can be seen or detected in processes, attitudes and behaviour that amount to discrimination through prejudice, ignorance, thoughtlessness and racist stereotyping which disadvantage minority ethnic people.”[4][5]

AIAA LA LV Celebrates Juneteenth

with Tyrone Jacobs Jr.

and other Aerospace leaders

Friday, June 19, 2020, 6 PM

(Add to Calendar)

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance
