The Tuskegee Airmen Wives Tell Their Stories project documents the role of a special group of women in desegregation in the United States.

During the early stages of World War II, the War Department created a Negro flying unit to determine if African Americans were capable of combat aviation. The men of these first military aviation units came to be known as the Tuskegee Airmen.

The Tuskegee Airmen Wives Tell Their Stories project brings to the public arena for the first time, the stories of the women who stood shoulder to shoulder with the airmen. The experiences of some of these brave and capable women have been recorded in their own words. Excerpts from their oral history interviews are being collected into a book that will be available for purchase by the general public.
