On the next American Black Journal, the Tuskegee Airmen made history as the first black pilots in the U.S. Army Air Corps.  One of the original Tuskegee Airmen, 94-year-old Frederick Henry, Sr., talks with Stephen about how the unit helped pave the way for full integration of the U.S military.  Plus, a history lesson on how the first Greek letter fraternity for African Americans -- Alpha Phi Alpha -- was established.
