Remembering Tuskegee Airman Lee Archer

The World

Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Lee A. Archer died this week in New York City at age 90. Archer was a Tuskegee Airman and considered to be the only black ace pilot. The Tuskegee Airmen were America’s first black fighter pilot group in World War II.

We talk about Archer’s legacy with Dr. Roscoe C. Brown, Jr., a fellow Airman, who served as a squadron commander and was a friend of Archer’s.
