Product Description
Willa Brown, C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson, Eleanor Roosevelt and Noel Parrish: Four extraordinary individuals who worked hard to make a unit of black military pilots possible and to make it a success.

While not a complete history of the “Tuskegee Airmen,” this slideshow describes highlights of the Tuskegee program and the deployment of black fighter squadrons overseas in addition to biographical information about the "four advocates."

Class discussion/essay questions/activities are included that may be used to augment the slideshow. Example:

Ask students to imagine that they have managed to arrange a five-minute meeting with President Franklin D. Roosevelt to discuss the importance of fully integrating African Americans into the military. What evidence, arguments, and examples would they use to convince FDR?

Example answers/arguments are included. Information contained in the slideshow will give students ideas for making convincing arguments in support of an integrated military in the early 1940s.

There is a lot to talk and write about in this unit!
