They made history - both in the military and beyond - becoming the first African American pursuit squadron in the United States. They were Army, and based in Tuskegee, Alabama. You've heard the stories and probably seen the movie, but on the next Another View we'll talk with Hampton Roads Tuskegee Airmen from a different perspective. Were the "glory days" really glorious? How did they gather the strength to fight the enemy in the air and then racism at home? Has the US given the Tuskegee Airmen their just due? Join us for this special edition of Another View as we spend time with Sgt. Harry Quinton; Chief Master Sgt. Grant Williams; and Corporal Wilbert Gore, all Tuskegee Airmen of Hampton Roads, Friday, January 4 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live at whrv.org.
