Tuskegee Airmen


Tuskegee Airmen

During WWII, a group of black American aviators known as the Tuskegee Airmen fought two wars - one against the enemy abroad, the other against racism at home. The pilots were trained within the segregated U.S. military as an experiment to see if blacks had what it took to fly in combat. The answer was a resounding "yes." This story focuses on the remembrances of 10 of the original Airmen as they return to Moton Army Air Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, where they began their incredible careers as Army Air Corps pilots and opened the field of aviation to African Americans.
