Publisher's Summary

It's up, up, and away with the Tuskegee Airmen, a heroic group of African American military pilots who helped the United States win World War II.

During World War II, black Americans were fighting for their country and for freedom in Europe, yet they had to endure a totally segregated military in the United States, where they weren't considered smart enough to become military pilots. After acquiring government funding for aviation training, civil rights activists were able to kickstart the first African American military flight program in the US at Tuskegee University in Alabama. While this audiobook details thrilling flight missions and the grueling training sessions the Tuskegee Airmen underwent, it also shines a light on the lives of these brave men who helped pave the way for the integration of the US armed forces.

So educational and memorable

Such an important aspect of US history - so well written and narrated. Thank you! Listened with my children who absorbed it all. Their great grandfather was a WWII bombardier so this book meant so much to me, that they learn this history. We had already listened to a book by Booker T. Washington so listening to this was very special for that reason too - to learn more about the legacy of Tuskegee. Precious history. Watching a film about the army air corps in WWII, my 8 year old started explaining anti-aircraft weapons and I asked How did you know all that?! And he looked at me puzzled and said “Because we learned about the Tuskegee Airmen!!!!” All thanks to this audiobook! So grateful this is available. Thank you.
