During the Second World War, a special project is begun by the US Army Air Corps to integrate African American pilots into the Fighter Pilot Program. Known as the "Tuskegee Airman" for the name of the airbase at which they were trained, these men were forced to constantly endure harassment, prejudice, and much behind the scenes politics until at last they were able to prove themselves in combat. In 1943, as the Germans are winning WWII and the US suffers huge losses on the ground and in the air, four newly recruited pilots are united by a desire to serve their country. “The Tuskegee Airmen” undertook the riskiest mission of their lives to prove to America that courage knows no color.
