LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas filmmaker Kevin Willmott will speak in Lawrence next week about the Tuskegee Airmen and introduce a Hollywood drama about the black World War II combat pilots.

The University of Kansas says Willmott will speak April 9 at the Dole Institute of Politics. There also will be free screenings that day of the film "Red Tails" at the Dole Institute and the Kansas Union.

The program is part of a series of events examining the role of African-Americans in World War II.

Besides teaching at the University of Kansas, Willmott has written, directed and produced.

He's examined racial division in several projects, including his Sundance entry, "CSA: The Confederate States of America." The faux documentary examines the nation that might have resulted had the South won the Civil War.
