a book list by Leah Smith, librarian and avid reader
From 1941 through 1946 a little under 1,000 black men graduated with commissions and pilot wings from Tuskegee Army Air Field (TAAF) in Tuskegee, Alabama. The first black American aviators to serve in combat, the Tuskegee Airmen were pilots whose heroic World War II exploits helped persuade President Harry Truman to end segregation across the entire military.
