Red Tails,” a movie chronicling the heroism of the Tuskegee Airmen starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terence Howard, opened this weekend. I had an opportunity to view a special screening Thursday night, the theater was filled to capacity with anxious moviegoers to finally watch a piece of history come to fruition. The highlight of the evening was meeting members of the North Carolina chapters of the Tuskegee airman. In spite of the racism during WWII, the segregation, the indignities they suffered, the Tuskegee airman fought with distinction and courage, and finally get the respect and recognition they so deserve.
