Description by OLDIES.com:

They battled prejudice as well as the enemy. Some were forced to fight for other countries in order to realize their dream. Others went on to become legend--yet still were victims of discrimination.

Take a long-overdue trip into the world of the black aviators who broke down barriers in order to take to the skies. Through period accounts, first-person recollections, and rare photos and footage, we'll follow the difficult journey of African-American pilots to secure their rightful place in the U.S. military. See how pioneers like Eugene Bullard and Bessie Coleman flew for France in WWI rather than serve in the segregated U.S. forces. Relive the exploits of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, who forever silenced those who said black pilots weren't skilled enough. And follow the career of Frank Peterson, who overcame segregation and discrimination on and off the military base to become the Marine's first African-American 3-star general.

From the First World War to the Gulf War and beyond, BLACK AVIATORS tells the inspiring story of the individuals who refused to back down in the face of unfair obstacles and won their place in the skies.
