African-Americans have made so many great contributions to America throughout history. From technology to food to sports and more, African-Americans have done so much for this great nation. Later this month, Smithsonian Channel will release a new documentary outlining the contributions that African-Americans have made in aviation in the form of Black Wings.
Black Wings will be released Tuesday, January 30 exclusively on DVD, right as African-American History Month prepares to start. The nearly hour-long program outlines how African-Americans overcame not just gravity but also racist views to accomplish their feats. From bi-planes to jet planes, from commercial airlines to the military and beyond, those accomplishments were as high as the sky itself. Audiences can get a sneak peek at the program online now here.
