Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977619249, Paperback)

In the summer of 1941 some of the brightest men in America began to assemble in Tuskegee, Alabama. History would remember them as the Tuskegee Airmen. They would soon begin to set the record straight about the competency of members of their race to fly sophisticated aircraft, specifically, and the character, courage, intellect and integrity of their race in general. But there is much more to know about the Tuskegee Airmen than just the portion of their lives spent as fighter and bomber escort pilots, and instructors. As cadets, a new arrivals first formal encounter with in-flight training was with one of the primary flight instructors. Charles Herbert Flowers, Jr. was a member of the third class of cadets at Tuskegee and one of the first thirteen Tuskegee Airmen. After completing his training he was hired as a primary flight instructor and became the first militarily trained African American flight instructor. Flowers would go on to train more than ten percent of the 920 pilots who trained at Tuskegee. Flowers was the first student government association president at North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina.
