The Tuskegee Airmen are among America’s greatest heroes whose stories must not be forgotten. It is essential that their efforts and accomplishments are recognized in our great history, for they are the ideal role models for all young students. The challenges of segregation, discrimination, and prejudice were immensely discouraging, but these individuals who so strongly believed in the promise of America were motivated by their own dreams and passions to overcome these obstacles. The Tuskegee heroes fought valiantly in World War II and the wars that followed, with many earning the Distinguished Flying Cross and other honors. This lesson introduces students to just three of the many heroic airmen whose inspirational stories must be heard.
