George Lucas' film, Red Tails, is an action packed look at the heroic efforts of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. These men were a part of the 332nd Fighter Group and fought with bravery for a country that still discriminated against them.
This film would be a wonderful resource during your WWII Unit, African American Studies, or Black History Month. The film has an all-star cast consisting of Nate Parker, Michael B. Jordan, David Oyelowo, Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr., Ne-Yo, Bryan Cranston, and more. The film is 125 minutes in length and is rated PG-13 for some sequences of war violence.
The movie guide contains 50 questions to assure the students stay on task for the film. This would be easy to leave for Sub Plans or to use for a last minute lesson. An answer key has been provided for your convenience. My students love this film and it covers a part of history that many need and want to know more about.
