Paula Webb, from the Southern University of Alabama Library, has put together a library guide about the Tuskegee Airmen:    African Americans have played a significant role in U.S. military history over the past 300 years. They were denied military leadership roles and skilled training because many believed they lacked qualifications for combat duty. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the U.S. military. Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure that resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941.

Black History Month serves as a time for students to learn about black history like 1234 but the question as to why race has to play a part in anything still remains.
