  • DHS Band pays tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen

    The Dedham High School Band is excited to present this tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen as a part of the Dedham Public Schools' contribution to the Dedham MLK Celebration being presented on Dedham TV this year. The first black airmen in the US Armed Forces, the Red Tails, were fearless pioneers who paved the way for members of the black community who wanted to serve their country. Martin Luther King's visions of equality and inclusion were created in the wake of their efforts to diversify the US Military, and we are excited to honor them with this incredible piece of music, "Red Tails" written by Ayatey Shabazz.
