A bill to rename the Morris Heights post office after former Tuskegee Airman and Bronx Community College President Dr. Roscoe C. Brown Jr. has made its way to the Senate. 
The bill, proposed by Congressman José Serrano, won in the House Thursday by a voice vote. 
Brown was a member of the Tuskegee Airman, the first African-American group of men to serve in the Air Force during World War II. He was later awarded the congressional gold medal for his service. Brown passed away in July. 
The bill now awaits a vote from the Senate.
