Fly Boys: Pennsylvania's Tuskegee Airmen DVD

"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome."

They were often treated as second class citizens, yet many (if not most), of the African American men who eventually joined the Tuskegee Institute volunteered to serve during World War II. Why?
