The Tuskegee Airmen

Informational (nonfiction) 1,675 words, Level V (Grade 4), Lexile 1120L.
In the 1940s, the United States was still a very racially divided country, even though it was fighting in World War II and needed able-bodied men. African Americans had previously not been allowed to train and fly as pilots in the U.S. Army Air Corps, not until the Tuskegee “Experiment.” Read to find out how this all-black flying unit from Tuskegee, Alabama, went on to become one of the most successful and heroic squadrons in history, despite segregation and discrimination.
