Landing After Hours: Lincoln University Civilian Pilot Program

At the dawn of WWII, the Civilian Aeronautics Authority invited a few historically black colleges and universities to participate in the Civil Pilot Training program, including Lincoln University. The Jefferson City Airfield hosted the program and provided integrated ground classes to Lincoln and Jefferson City Junior College students. After training, several Lincoln alumni served at home and abroad as U.S. Army Air Corps Tuskegee Airmen. Join Michelle Brooks as she tells the story of the program and airmen.
