P-51 Mustangs of the 332nd Fighter Group (Tuskegee Airmen). Ramitelli, Italy, March 1945. Photograph by Toni Frissell.

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
