Tuskegee Airmen at a briefing in Italy in 1945. The squad of all African American pilots was formed in 1941 after extensive lobbying for funding by the press and civil rights organizations. Prior to 1941 African American men were barred from flying for the U.S. military. The pressure resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941.
