They Fought Two Wars. One Against the Nazis Abroad. One Against Racism at Home.

In 1941, with the world at war, a select group of African Americans made their way to Tuskegee, Alabama. They were to be part of an experiment - an experiment to see if blacks had the intellectual and physical ability to fly an aircraft in combat. They traveled to the deep South, into the heart of segregation, with dreams of becoming their country's first black fighter pilots. None could have imagined the struggle that lay before them. None could have foreseen the legends they would become. All knew one thing, however. They were determined to become Tuskegee Airmen.
