Tuskegee Airmen in The News
By ANNA SCIANNA
Larry Brown, like many other little boys, admired pilots and dreamed of flying airplanes.
But for a black child in the 1930s, that dream seemed out of reach.
"All I could do is look to the sky and watch them fly," said Brown, who grew up in Memphis, Tenn.
It wasn't until high school, when he met a couple of members of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first all-black flying unit in the U.S. military, that he realized his fantasy could become reality.
