Overview

Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor drew the United States into history's most violent war, and America's blacks yearned for a chance to fight for their country. Despite their unequal treatment at home the treat of fascism was far worse. With the Tuskegee Experiment, the opportunity to serve their country-and to fly -became reality. Although the experiment was meant to fail, the Tuskegee Airmen seized the opportunity and proved, once and for all, that blacks could fly Mustangs; the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group never lost an escorted bomber to enemy fighters

Artist Roy La Grone, a Tuskegee Airman of World War II, devoted much of his career to the United States Air Force Art program. It was his personal mission to capture on canvas the bravery of his comrades. The unique story of the Tuskegee's Airmen is told through firsthand accounts from the pilots, more than 100 rare historical photographs, and Roy La Grone's outstanding paintings.
