This 2011 documentary film is shown in honor of the 80th anniversary of the formation of the first African-American Army Air Corps Squadron in January 1941.
In Their Own Words tells the story of the African-American pilots who fought to protect the skies during WWII. Complete with personal interviews with 20 of the original Airmen, rare photos, and computer-generated recreations, this film chronicles the Airmen’s story from the rocky 1941 start, to the awarding of the Congressional Gold Medal in 2007.
