Synopsis: A Pilot s Journey, Memoirs of a Tuskegee Airman, Curtis Christopher Robinson by George Norfleet tells readers who Tuskegee Airmen like Curtis Robinson really were. It captures the reasons that he and his peers excelled so outstandingly during World War II and why they continued to do so during their lifetimes. The memoir takes you through the life and times of Robinson in a manner that reveals his character and accomplishments as a Tuskegee Airman, and beyond, while providing insights into how he managed the challenges of his era. Not only does he have a remarkable and fascinating history that he tells, but he is the descendant of a family of high achievers that he traces to the 1730s, with five previous generations on American soil. His family story depicts without rancor or judgment shameful aspects of American history and the amazing struggles and achievements of an African-American family. Mr. Robinson had family members who worked on the congressional campaign of Congressman Robert Smalls in 1876, and is the son of a family that produced three military officers during World War II he plus two his older brothers - a record for World War II. His story is a personal, informative, insightful and entertaining view into the origins of an African American middle class family that distinguished itself during World War II and established itself during Reconstruction.
