    American Patriot Radio, Tuskegee Airmen

    in Education

    The Tuskegee Airmen Movie was first aired on T.V in 1995.


    The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces. During World War II, Black Americans in many U.S. states were still subject to the Jim Crow laws and the American military was racially segregated, as was much of the federal government. The Tuskegee Airmen were subjected to racial discrimination, both within and outside the army. All black military pilots who trained in the United States trained at Moton Field and Tuskegee Army Air Field, located near Tuskegee, Alabama, which included five Haitians from the Haitian Air Force (Alix Pasquet, Raymond Cassagnol, Pelissier Nicolas, Ludovic Audant, and Eberle Guilbaud).


    Although the 477th Bombardment Group trained with North American B-25 Mitchell bombers, they never served in combat. The 99th Pursuit Squadron (later, 99th Fighter Squadron) was the first black flying squadron, and the first to deploy overseas (to North Africa in April 1943, and later to Sicily and Italy). The 332nd Fighter Group, which originally included the 100th, 301st, and 302nd Fighter Squadrons, was the first black flying group. The group deployed to Italy in early 1944. In June 1944, the 332nd Fighter Group began flying heavy bomber escort missions, and in July 1944, the 99th Fighter Squadron was assigned to the 332nd Fighter Group, which then had four fighter squadrons.


    Much more info can be found on the web and we incourage you to give a look at all the exciting history that pertains to the great group of Airmen.


    Enjoy and Welcome to Saturday Night at the Movies

    NYCC Approaches, Tuskegee Airmen Comix & BLM Debate @The Grindhouse, Sat 6pm

    in Politics Conservative

    Teanastellen! (Hello in Amharic/Ethiopian) Pull up a chair (with your phone/tablet,etc) and check out the latest edition of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast airing this Saturday at 6pm EST.  Join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and "the Uncanny" Daryll B. as they decipher this week Rubik's cube-like conundrums: as the New York Comic Con marches forward, not only are The Defenders (Netflix) scheduled to make an appearance but a teaser trailer for Jessica Jones hits the interwebs; Dburt really digs TNT's 60s crime drama, Public Morals; comic writer, Garth Ennis tackles the Tuskegee Airmen in an upcoming series entitled, Dreaming Eagles; photos of Hawkman and Hawkgirl, courtesy of the CW hit the net; the crew gives their thoughts about original programming coming to Apple as perhaps a competitor to Netflix and Amazon; perhaps in the vein of a Batman vs Superman crossover move, has the forthcoming King Kong: Skull Island film moved from Universal to Warner Bros to wrestle Godzilla? And lastly, our impressions of Zack Snyder's comments levied toward the Ant-Man film and the perceived seriousness of prospective WB/DC comic films.


    For the second half, when we delve into more socio-political fare, the good folks at Podcast Juice stop by to engage in a fruitful debate about the efficacy of Black Lives Matter. Is it only about police misconduct claims or is it appropriate to include intraracial urban violence under the BLM banner? (Dburt say "yes" resoundingly); Retired tennis phenom, James Blake gets manhandled by the NYPD; Waxing on the Venus and Serena showing at US Open. And Dburt questions Donald Trump (again) on labeling fellow Republican presidential aspirant, Dr. Ben Carson an "OK doctor"  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
