Benjamin Davis

Davis (1913-2002) was the first African-American in the 20th century to graduate from West Point, and after graduating in Tuskegee's first cadet class he became one of the first African-Americans to serve as a flying officer in the US Army Air Corps.

Flying the P-40 Warhawk and the P-51 Mustang, he commanded the 332nd Fighter Group in 1943, which became known as the best escort operators in the 15th Air Force.

His efforts to repel discrimination culminated in 1949 when the Air Force became the first racially integrated branch of the U.S. Armed Services. In October 27, 1949, he became the first African-American Brigadier General in the U.S. Air Force.
