Title from container.

Originally broadcast on the Smithsonian Channel in 2012.

For early aviators, conquering the forces of gravity was a daunting challenge. But black aviators had an additional challenge--conquering the forces of racism. Meet the men and women of color who took to the skies throughout the 20th century and helped prove to a segregated nation that skin color didn't determine skill level. From biplanes to commercial jets, and from barnstormers to war fighters, meet the path-breaking pilots who opened the skies for all.
