Lucasfilm is producing the movie Red Tails with Terrance Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr. The film tells the story of the under utilized Tuskegee airmen. They were the first African-American airmen in the US Army during World War 2. Jim Crow laws were still in effect at the time and the men had to deal with racism inside and outside of the military.
Look for Red Tails in theaters on January 20th, 2012.
