Description: The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum introduces the free Tour Guide Talk "With Bravery and Distinction" that will run every Saturday and Sunday through February 24. This 45-minute tour celebrates the little-known accomplishments of African-American pioneers in the areas of sea, air and space. The tour will lead visitors back in time, highlighting many inspirational stories of men and women who heroically broke through barriers, paving the way for future generations. Among the historical accounts that the tour shares with visitors are that of USS Intrepid's Gun Tub-10, the brave ship stewards who fought to save the Intrepid from a kamikaze attack; Jesse Brown, the Navy's first African-American combat pilot who lost his life during the Korean war; Navy officer Dick Turpin, an African American Navy Diver who is credited with inventing the underwater cutting torch used at Pearl Harbor; Robert Lawrence, America's first African-American astronaut who in 1967 was part of the Gemini MOL (Manned Orbital Laboratory) program and many more. This Tour Guide Talk is free with the price of admission to the museum. Visitors can check in at the Information Deck in Hangar 1.
