Overview

Breaking barriers at home and abroad, the Tuskegee Airmen were a skilled group of African-American pilots chosen to fly during World War II. Nightfighters tells the story of these under appreciated soldiers. The 332nd Fighter Group was established to provide air support for white fighters. At first, nobody believed such a group could pull off a self-contained unit. But, the Tuskegee Airmen smashed expectations by performing above and beyond the call of duty. Black pilots, support crew, and surgical staff inhabited Italy and North Africa during World War II, making it the first integrated operation. Though they were largely ignored even after proving valiant on the battlefield, the Tuskegee Airmen showed enormous bravery. Their fight for acceptance as equals continued long after the War was over. ~ Sarah Ing
