Tuskegee Airman George Hickman Dies

George Hickman, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen, passed away in Seattle on Monday at the age of 88. Hickman and the other airmen were the first Black pilots and ground crew members who fought during World War II. In other Tuskegee news, Brew Graham, 97, America's oldest living Tuskegee airman, was finally recognized and honored with a Congressional Medal of Honor this past week. (Photo: AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, file)
