The Tuskegee Airmen were a groundbreaking group of Black American pilots who flew over 15,000 missions in WW2 in defense of the United States and our allies. Despite their bravery and patriotism during World War II, black Americans in many U.S. states were still subject to the Jim Crow laws and the American military was racially segregated, as was much of the federal government. The Tuskegee Airmen were subjected to discrimination, both within and outside the army.”
