Told by the Tuskegee Airmen and their spouses, this biographical documentary is the story of African American servicemen of WWII fighting a battle war at home and abroad. To serve, protect, and willingly die for all our nation’s values, they trained in segregated facilities, used inferior equipment, and engaged in segregated missions.
Part of the Civil Rights Collection, this DVD examines the courage and heroism of African Americans who persevered and survived in a prejudiced American military. DVD includes footage of the Tuskegee Airmen National Museum and historic site, preserving the history of the first African Americans to serve in the US military and commemorate their patriotism.
