A traveling exhibit created by Jerry Taliaferro Photography relating to the story of the first African-American aviators in the U.S. Military during World War II. The first squadron of black pilots entered combat in North Africa in early 1943, beginning the critical test phase of the "Tuskegee Experiment."  The outcome of this trial would impact future opportunities for African-Americans in and outside the military.
 
Photographs, carefully researched depiction of events, models, maps and graphics are used to inform visitors about the men, the aircraft they flew and the machines they were up against, and the operations in which they participated. A section of the exhibition is dedicated to recognizing members from Iowa that served with the 99th FS and the 332nd FG or were involved with the "Tuskegee Project."
