I was fascinated when I met pilot Gerry Dupree. This Tennessee native has been to over 75 countries and has flown cargo ranging from standard parcels to live dolphins. Here, I take a dive into his experiences as an African-American pilot.
The Tuskegee Airmen were the first group of African-American military aviators. They fought in WWII and although they were risking their lives for our country, they were still subjected to Jim Crow laws.
