The Tuskegee Airmen
Their Legacy Is Just as Relevant Today
- Determination, Persistence, & Excellence In All You Do
The Tuskegee Airmen demonstrated that African Americans, when afforded the opportunity, have the mental and physical abilities required to be effective military leaders and combat pilots. Their performance helped pave the way for the desegregation of the military beginning in 1948.
The Airmen were not just pilots or even all males. They were bombardiers, navigators, mechanics, technicians, radio operators, medical personnel, air traffic controllers, and others. Also included were Caucasian officers, Native Americans, Caribbean islanders, Latinos, and people of mixed racial heritage.
