Clarence Dart

As a member of the famed World War II Tuskegee Airmen, Clarence Dart not only fought valiantly for his country oversees, he fought racism at home. Named after their training site in Alabama, the Tuskegee Airmen were the first African –Americans to fly as fighter-pilots in the United States military.  As Dart recalls, “Someone in the War Department believed that the cranial capacity of blacks wouldn’t let them fly. We proved them wrong!”  Indeed, they did:  the Tuskegee  Airmen did not lose a single escorted bomber to the Germans.  Their heroism  during World War II was a key reason why President Truman desegregated the armed forces soon after the end of the war.
