Chances for African Americans to participate in the U.S. military were historically very limited. African American soldiers had to battle exclusion, limiting quotas, and racial discrimination to prove they possessed the intellect, abilities and special skills to be considered successful fighters. Caving into political pressure exerted by the black press and various civil rights groups, the United States Army Air Corps (Air Force) finally decided to train a small number of African American pilot cadets at Tuskegee University. The training took place primarily at Moton Field, the only training facility for African American pilot candidates during the second World War. The great success experienced by the Tuskegee Airmen proved to the public that African Americans could become effective military leaders and pilots when given the opportunity, and paved the way for the desegregation in the military.
