The Tuskegee airmen were the first black aviators in the U.S. military, according to History. They served during World War II, when the military was still segregated and many people believed black people were inferior to whites.
Between 1941 and 1946, 992 African-American pilots trained at Tuskegee Army Air Field, and this group is collectively known as the Tuskegee Airmen. The full list of pilots can be found in the book "Black Knights - The Story of the Tuskegee Airmen" and also from Tuskegee University.
The Tuskegee Airmen formed in 1941. The airmen were an all African-American air squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama. The squadron's success and achievements in World War II led to the integration of African-Americans into the United States' military forces.
While there is no official listing of the names of the surviving Tuskegee Airmen, information about survivors appears in Tuskegee Airmen newsletters published online. Survivors also attend public events around the country, and their names are sometimes listed in news stories.
A list of Tuskegee airmen is maintained on the Tuskegee University's official website. To find the list, click on "About Us," and then click on "Legacy of Fame."
