Tuskegee Airmen Heritage

Recruiters from the Michigan Air National Guard meet with students of Benjamin O. Davis High School at Coleman A. Young Airport in Detroit during a heritage day honoring Tuskegee Airmen, May 8, 2016. The students participate in a specialized curriculum that uses aviation as a catalyst to focus on math, engineering and related skills. The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of all-African American Airmen during World War II who helped to bring about the end of racial segregation in the U.S. military. The recruiters are assigned to Selfridge Air National Guard Base, where some Tuskegee Airmen were assigned during WWII. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Dan Heaton)
