Last Updated by
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.
