The Tuskegee Airmen were the 1st African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces. During World War II, 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.
