Tuskegee Airmen CCR

The movie “The Tuskegee Airmen” was about African Americans who were being trained to become pilots in the United States Air Corps. Each of the men were called out to the military base in Tuskegee to learn how to fly and also how to react in combat. Although some of the men died in flight training, most of them were sent overseas. When the Tuskegee Airmen first joined the military, they were looked down upon, what with the level of racism in America at the time. Over time, the white pilots began to realize how important the African Americans were to the Air Corps. In the end, the Tuskegee Airmen earned the respect they deserved, and were even awarded the opportunity to escort bombers into Berlin.
