Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site

In the 1940s, the U.S. military launched a program at Alabama's Tuskegee Institute to train African-American pilots and support staff. This site honors the 15,000 men and women who participated in the "Tuskegee Experience," including the World War II pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen. (Photo:  Arthur P.
