In the book “The Home Front,” the author states, “Many top officials also believed, without any supporting evidence, that African Americans were not brave and disciplined enough to serve in combat units, even if they were segregated from whites.” This was to be completely disproven by the heroic actions of many Africa...   [tags: Tuskegee Airmen]
