Nightfighters tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of elite black pilots who distinguished themselves during numerous WWII combat missions, despite the segregation and racism that existed in the U.S. Military at the time.
This DVD will prove to be an inspiration for many viewers, those who enjoy stories of underdogs who prevail despite hardship and, in this case, racism. This terrific documentary chronicles the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, and how they flew during World War II, watching the backs of the bombers. They flew in Italy and proved to be more than worthy of their reputation.
Many people were surprised to learn they were African Americans and, according to those who knew, the best Airmen around. The DVD features interviews with some of the Tuskegee Airmen. Due to a couple of utterances of language, we are recommending this DVD for ages twelve and above but it definitely has earned our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. It is a story that needs to be heard and viewed.
