“If ordinary people are given proper training and opportunity they can do extraordinary things, regardless of race, creed, or color.” Those words were spoken by Mr. Howard Baugh (pictured), who flew 135 missions with the Tuskegee Airmen.
The Tuskegee Airmen served with distinction during World War II, fighting racism at home and fascism abroad. In order to maintain the squadron’s strength, many Tuskegee pilots had to fly beyond the 50 missions expected of other squadrons.
Join the sons of Captain Baugh for a moderated discussion as part of Black History Month.
