The African-American Army Air Corp fighters who flew over the skies of Europe during World War II made historic contributions toward the desegregation of the American military and furthering of civil rights. Travel with these dedicated and determined young men who accepted the challenge to take flight for a country that showed them nothing but adversity on the ground. The Tuskegee Airmen show us what happens when the playing field is truly level.
