Tuskegee Airmen with new planes…

There is no question that Tuskegee holds a special place in American history. Many people can point to this place to show just how our country came together and decided that we were going to fight a war to free others oppressed by Nazi tyranny.

That war was World War II. Black soldiers fought and engaged with enemy soldiers in the Eastern and Western theaters of the war. However, we may have fought together, but separately.
