"Live with Harold Lee Rush"
Program was privileged to interview
Mr Kenneth Rapier,
President of the Chicago "DODO" Chapter of
The Tuskegee Airmen, Inc. as our guest.
In December, 1941, the United States entered World War II’s
European Theatre to join the Allied forces of Freedom and Democracy
against the Nazi ideals of ethnic and racial purity.
One of the Allies’ strongest weapons was the 332nd Fighter Group,
450 Fighter Pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen.
They were called the "Tuskegee Airmen"
because they were trained at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.
They were all Black. [why is this important?]
