Furthermore, the color of the plane's nose reminded me of the recent film Red Tails and the plight of African American soldiers in Europe. In communities only miles away from this museum, African Americans were welcomed into pubs, restaurants and clubs by the local populace.

Still, the ugly shadow of Jim Crow lingered here and there--sometimes erupting in race riots between white and black GIs in the months leading up to the Normandy invasion.
