The subject was Tuskegee Airmen

Courtney Gaiter, member of the Ohio Memorial Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen, shared the history of the Tuskegee Airmen during the Nov. 13 African-American History class at Bluffton University. Two Lima men, Charles “C.I.” Williams and Malcolm McCoy, were part of the pioneering group of African-American fighter pilots and service personnel who overcame racism and segregation to fly in the Army Air Corps during WWII.
