Summary, etc.:
They were often treated as second class citizens, yet many (if not most), of the African American men who eventually joined the Tuskegee Institute volunteered to serve during World War II. Why? Find out as the film takes you directly to the Tuskegee training base as it exists today. And through the use of archival footage transports you to the battles where some of Americas bravest men fought in the air and on the ground. Hear from their family and friends, and see film and pictures from the war that capture the thrill and danger of air battle over Europe.
