Tuskegee Airman Has Tales To Tell

 

Before 1940, the U.S. military blatantly discriminated against African Americans, refusing to train them as pilots.   Starting in 1941, the Tuskegee Airmen changed that and served with valor in World War Two. 

As with all veterans of that war, the number of living Tuskegee Airmen is dwindling, so when one of these key figures in US military and civil rights history visited Minnesota, KFAI’s Will Wright was there.
