Hear the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of Black military pilots who broke stereotypes and helped win World War II with their daring fighter escorts of American bombers. This legacy-themed documentary features interviews with many original Tuskegee Airmen, family members, and historians - both Italian and American.
