There is also a book called "Segregated Skies" that is worth a read.

If you're interested in black pilots in general, you might google about Roger Sauvage, who was a black pilot in the Normandie Niemen (eastern front).

Here's a pic of his Yak 3 at the end of the war:

Pic of him (I'm sure you can guess which one he is /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )
