In publishing this book in 1955, Charles Francis did not know that his title, The Tuskegee Airmen, was to launch a revolution of awareness among America's black pilots. Now in its fourth edition, the book contains about 100 original photographs, 120 pages of facts, 26 Index pages, and as complete a listing of the original graduading classes as can be found in other publications.

From the Back Cover:

More than 140 entries in this book depict events which have had lasting national significance in opening opportunities in the struggle for equal civil rights and opportunities for women. The impact of many of the included events was initially felt on a local level; but in time it created repercussions that spread across the country. These stories show women assuming roles of providers and heads of households, and their leadership, exerted in and outside the home, would often manifest in the community at large and, in turn, in the nation and in the world.The book is divided into four parts: One—The Seeds Are planted; Two—19th Century—The Movement Takes Root; Three—20th Century—Reaching for the Sunlight; Four—21st Century—Coming into Full Bloom. The book begins with Anne Hutchinson and Mary Dyer and ends with Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Oprah Winfrey, and Sarah Palin.

About the Author:

Charles E. Francis, a native of Maryland, received a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Master's in American History from Howard University. Inducted into the Army Air Corps, he received his basic training in Columbus, Mississippi. He was assigned to Fort Myers, Florida to help organize the newly constructed Buckingham Army Air Forces Flexible Gunnery School. In 1944, he went to Tuskegee, where he observed and understood the significance and meaning of the Tuskegee revolution. Married to Frances H. Lewis, the late Mr and Mrs Francis leave behind two children and three grandchildren: David Westbrook, April Francis, and Charles Francis III.

Adolph Caso has degrees from Northeastern and Harvard University; a retired Colonel USAR, he is the author of 14 books, including the The Straw Obelisk, a post World War II novel, and We, the People--Formative Documents of America's Democracy.
