Legacy Matters: Tuskeege airman’s daughter Rhonda Leonard Horwith speaks on legacy of Black patriotism

Rhonda Leonard-Horwith grew up all over the United States as the daughter of Tuskegee Airman, Lt. Col. Harlan Q. Leonard, Jr. (her grandfather was also Harlan Leonard, Sr., an American jazz musician from Kansas City who formed the band “Harlan Leonard and His Rockets”). She remembers hearing her father talk about being a “dog fighting Tuskegee Airman’’ when she sat on his lap listening to stories as he looked at old photos. Seeing familiar faces, he would remark “he’s gone” each time his young daughter pointed to someone in the pictures.
