[edit] Information

"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome."

Booker T. Washington - Founder, Tuskegee Institute

In the dangerous days of World War II, there were few roles more glamorous - and dangerous - than that of the fighter pilot. And while the rest of the country lined up to do battle, African Americans were no different. They wanted to show their patriotism by taking to the skies, fighting the enemy and protecting their country. But first they had to conquer formidable foes already firmly entrenched on the home front - racial prejudice and discrimination. "FLY BOYS: WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA'S TUSKEGEE AIRMEN," tells the story of the brave men who battled in the air and on the ground. Reportedly, more than 56 men from Western Pennsylvania served as Tuskegee Airmen and many are alive and well today. "FLY BOYS" tells the personal stories of many of these remaining heroes and revisits that heady and heart breaking time.
