Join us as we discuss Freedom flyers: the Tuskegee Airmen of WWII by Todd Moye.
As the country’s first African American military pilots, the Tuskegee Airmen fought in World War II on two fronts: against the Axis powers in the skies over Europe and against Jim Crow racism and segregation at home. Although the pilots flew more than 15,000 sorties and destroyed more than 200 German aircraft, their most far-reaching achievement defies quantification: delivering a powerful blow to racial inequality and discrimination in American life.
The WWII Non-fiction book club reads a different nonfiction title that focuses on World War II each month. New members are always welcome.
