Turbulence Before Takeoff is the inspiring story of Marlon DeWitt Green, a successful Air Force pilot who became the first black pilot hired by a passenger airline, but only after years of struggle that ended with a unanimous, landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in his favor. Paralleling Captain Green's saga are unforgettable stories from the 1950s and 1960s, when the battle for civil rights nearly tore America apart, and unforgettable characters like Robert Kennedy, Martin Luthers King, Jr., and a tireless lawyer who didn't know the word "quit."

From the Inside Flap:

As incredible as it may seem today, until the mid-1960s major U.S. airlines refused to hire African-American pilots. It took Marlon DeWitt Green to challenge--and ultimately change--the entrenched system of segregation in the airline industry. Turbulence Before Takeoff is the story of Green's long and courageous struggle, set within the larger context of the battle for civil rights and equality that nearly tore America apart in the 20th century. It is an inspirational story that will never be forgotten.
