Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site as established by section
(2) Secretary.--The term ``Secretary'' means the Secretary

(3) Tuskegee airmen.--The term ``Tuskegee Airmen'' means the

(4) Tuskegee university.--The term ``Tuskegee University''
means the institution of higher education by that name located
in the State of Alabama and founded by Booker T. Washington in
1881, formerly named Tuskegee Institute.
SEC. 302. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.
(a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
(1) The struggle of African-Americans for greater roles in
North American military conflicts spans the 17th, 18th, 19th,
and 20th centuries. Opportunities for African-American
participation in the United States military were always very
limited and controversial. Quotas, exclusion, and racial
discrimination were based on the prevailing attitude in the
United States, particularly on the part of the United States
military, that African-Americans did not possess the
intellectual capacity, aptitude, and skills to be successful
(2) As late as the 1940's these perceptions continued within
the United States military. Key leaders within the United States
Army Air Corps did not believe that African-Americans possessed
the capacity to become successful military pilots. After
succumbing to pressure exerted by civil rights groups and the
black press, the Army decided to train a small number of
African-American pilot cadets under special conditions. Although
prejudice and discrimination against African-Americans was a
national phenomenon, not just a southern trait, it was more
intense in the South where it had hardened into rigidly enforced
patterns of segregation. Such was the environment where the
military chose to locate the training of the Tuskegee Airmen.
(3) The military selected Tuskegee Institute (now known as
Tuskegee University) as a civilian contractor for a variety of
reasons. These included the school's existing facilities,
engineering and technical instructors, and a climate with ideal
flying conditions year round. Tuskegee Institute's strong
interest in providing aeronautical training for African-American
youths was also an important factor. Students from the school's
civilian pilot training program had some of the best test scores
when compared to other students from programs across the
[[Page 112 STAT. 3255]]
(4) In 1941 the United States Army Air Corps awarded a
contract to Tuskegee Institute to operate a primary flight
school at Moton Field. Tuskegee Institute (now known as Tuskegee
University) chose an African-American contractor who designed
and constructed Moton Field, with the assistance of its faculty
and students, as the site for its military pilot training
program. <<NOTE: Robert Russa Moton.>> The field was named for
the school's second president, Robert Russa Moton. Consequently,
Tuskegee Institute was one of a very few American institutions
(and the only African-American institution) to own, develop, and
control facilities for military flight instruction.
(5) Moton Field, also known as the Primary Flying Field or
Airport Number 2, was the only primary flight training facility
for African-American pilot candidates in the United States Army
Air Corps during World War II. The facility symbolizes the
entrance of African-American pilots into the United States Army
Air Corps, although on the basis of a policy of segregation that
was mandated by the military and institutionalized in the South.
The facility also symbolizes the singular role of Tuskegee
Institute (Tuskegee University) in providing leadership as well
as economic and educational resources to make that entry
(6) The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American
soldiers to complete their training successfully and to enter
the United States Army Air Corps. Almost 1,000 aviators were
trained as America's first African-American military pilots. In
addition, more than 10,000 military and civilian African-
American men and women served as flight instructors, officers,
bombardiers, navigators, radio technicians, mechanics, air
traffic controllers, parachute riggers, electrical and
communications specialists, medical professionals, laboratory
assistants, cooks, musicians, supply, firefighting, and
(7) Although military leaders were hesitant to use the
Tuskegee Airmen in combat, the Airmen eventually saw
considerable action in North Africa and Europe. Acceptance from
United States Army Air Corps units came slowly, but their
courageous and, in many cases, heroic performance earned them
increased combat opportunities and respect.
(8) <<NOTE: Harry S. Truman.>> The successes of the Tuskegee
Airmen proved to the American public that African-Americans,
when given the opportunity, could become effective military
leaders and pilots. This helped pave the way for desegregation
of the military, beginning with President Harry S. Truman's
Executive Order 9981 in 1948. The Tuskegee Airmen's success also
helped set the stage for civil rights advocates to continue the
struggle to end racial discrimination during the civil rights
movement of the 1950's and 1960's.
(9) The story of the Tuskegee Airmen also reflects the
struggle of African-Americans to achieve equal rights, not only
through legal attacks on the system of segregation, but also
through the techniques of nonviolent direct action. The members
of the 477th Bombardment Group, who staged a nonviolent
demonstration to desegregate the officer's club at Freeman
Field, Indiana, helped set the pattern for direct action
protests popularized by civil rights activists in later decades.
(b) Purposes.--The purposes of this title are the following:
[[Page 112 STAT. 3256]]
(1) To inspire present and future generations to strive for
excellence by understanding and appreciating the heroic legacy
of the Tuskegee Airmen, through interpretation and education,
and the preservation of cultural resources at Moton Field, which
was the site of primary flight training.
(2) To commemorate and interpret--
(A) the impact of the Tuskegee Airmen during World
(B) the training process for the Tuskegee Airmen,
including the roles played by Moton Field, other
training facilities, and related sites;
(C) the African-American struggle for greater
participation in the United States Armed Forces and more
significant roles in defending their country;
(D) the significance of successes of the Tuskegee
Airmen in leading to desegregation of the United States
Armed Forces shortly after World War II; and
(E) the impacts of Tuskegee Airmen accomplishments
on subsequent civil rights advances of the 1950's and
(3) To recognize the strategic role of Tuskegee Institute
(now Tuskegee University) in training the airmen and
commemorating them at this historic site.
SEC. 303. ESTABLISHMENT OF TUSKEGEE AIRMEN NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE.
(a) Establishment.--In order to commemorate and interpret, in
association with Tuskegee University, the heroic actions of the Tuskegee

21, 1935 (commonly known as the Historic Sites, Buildings, and
Antiquities Act; 16 U.S.C. 461 et seq.).
(2) Role of tuskegee university.--The Secretary shall
consult with Tuskegee University as its principal partner in
determining the organizational structure, developing the ongoing
interpretive themes, and establishing policies for the wise
management, use and development of the historic site. With the
agreement of Tuskegee University, the Secretary shall engage
appropriate departments, and individual members of the
