Overview

The Tuskegee Airmen not only flew 1,500 successful missions in World War II,
but also laid the groundwork for an end to unfair practices banning black men
from certain military professions.
While playing at their grandparents 1/2 house one day, Joshua and Krista
discover a World War II uniform, helmet, and medals. Their grandfather shares
with them the story of his proud days as a member of America 1/2s first all-black
flying squadron.
When the Tuskegee Experience began in 1931, officials believed black people
were incapable of learning to fly an airplane. The Tuskegee airmen proved them
wrong, and served as a sterling example of what a people--thought best suited to
janitorial work, cooking, and manual labor--could do.
