REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 5-May-2006)

I not only saw the movie, but did a research paper for an American Folklore Class at Widener Unversity In Chester, PA. This was an excellent and should be seen by "ALL" people. It had many, many lessons learned. For example, it showed how the Tuskegee Airmen handled bigotry, ignorance, racism in the military with dignity and style. It showed how we had a government that was "racist" rather than "fair." It showed when given an "OPPORTUNITY" - ALL peole can succeed. It showed there was no difference between black and white. It showed how all pepole are not the same, as was beautifully demonstrated by Mrs. Roosevelt. She had a compassionate and understanding heart for the Tuskegee Airmen and demanded that they be given a fair chance. I have had the pleasure of coversing today with several of the oringal Tuskegee Airmen and they are dignified, well-educated men. All they wanted then and now is a fair chance in life. That is what we all deserve. I'm sure you agree. Miss Edna Robinson, Princeton, NJ
