Before there was a Civil Rights Movement in the United States, there were the Tuskegee Airmen. This is the story of their struggle to be accepted as World War II United States Army Air Corps pilots, and their fight to represent and defend a country that denied them many of their basic rights and civil liberties. Despite the extreme difficulties they faced, the Tuskegee airmen persevered and many became political officials, high-ranking military personnel, presidents of companies and successful businessmen. They continue, more than 50 years later, to be a viable force in the Armed Forces and in their own communities today.
