WOW!! A well-done film. Eleanor Roosevelt is due credit for forcing her husband to give black men the chance to fly. Once the opportunity was available, black air force cadets acquitted themselves admirably despite the discrimination, the deprivations, and the doubters that they endured. As one Tuskegee Airman said, "It's my country. Despite its failings, I have as big a stake in it as anybody". But between swelling pride, and falling tears, the thought of what "might have been" occurs. What might these men have done for the country, their families, and themselves had they had the much discussed, little displayed, equal opportunity that this nation likes to congratulate itself on?
Looking forward to "Red Tails", the new George Lucas film about the Tuskegee Airmen which opens on January 20th.
