Ww2 history

19 Mar 41: The 99th Pursuit Squadron is activated, also known as the Tuskegee Airmen, the first all-black unit of the Army Air Corp. During WWII, African Americans in many US states were still subject to the Jim Crow laws. The American military was racially segregated, as was much of the federal government. The Tuskegee Airmen were subjected to racial discrimination, both within and outside the army. Despite these adversities, they trained and flew with distinction. #WWII #History

There's something about this photograph of WWII working women, looking happy, strong, united and purposeful. This may have been for the first time in American history where women felt so empowered and responsible for holding down the fort. That may just be why it appeals to me.  Photo by Ewing Galloway ~
