Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site

During World War II, the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site played a crucial role in the desegregation of the United States military. This was the site of the "Tuskegee Airmen Experiment," a program that trained more than 10,000 African American and minority men and women to join the armed forces. The historic site honors the contributions of these pioneering people who worked in both combat and support roles throughout the war. During your visit, explore the hangar museums, check out the residences, and see Moton Field, where the segregated African American air cadets went through flight training.
