Short Description: 
Tuskegee Airmen
Surviving Tuskegee airmen visited Portland on November 7th, speaking at the Portland Community College Cascade Campus. The Tuskegee airmen were the first African-American aviators in the U.S. armed forces. The Tuskegee Airmen were subjected to racial discrimination, both within and outside the army. Back in the 1950s, there were 1,000 Tuskegee Airmen. There are now less than 200 remaining. Kristin Yount produced this program
