Silver Wings and Civil Rights: The Fight to Fly is a 90-minute documentary film featuring over 25 original members of the Tuskegee Airmen. In their own words hear how these men defied a cultural history of discrimination to not only fly but defend a country that treated them as second class citizens. Featuring many of the original 'red tail" pilots including Spann Watson, Charlie McGee, Alex Jefferson this film has captured the first-hand accounts of those now lost to history.
