Eugene Jacques BullardDuring Black History Month (and throughout the year), visitors to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force can view exhibits and check out online resources to learn more about African Americans who served in the Air Force and its predecessor organizations.

Learn about Eugene Jacques Bullard, the first African American military pilot who volunteered in the French army during World War I in our Early Years Gallery and tour the expanded Tuskegee Airmen exhibit in the World War II Gallery. This exhibit features a Stearman PT-13D training aircraft, in addition to photos and documents, as well as artifacts such as Col. Edward Gleed's flight jacket, Maj. Charles Hall's Distinguished Flying Cross, and objects from Lt. Col. Charles DeBow, one of the first five pilots to graduate from Tuskegee.
