SEC. 102. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds that--
            (1) the industrial, cultural, and natural heritage legacies 
        of Michigan's automobile industry are nationally significant;
            (2) in the areas of Michigan including and in proximity to 
        Detroit, Dearborn, Pontiac, Flint, and Lansing, the design and 
        manufacture of the automobile helped establish and expand the 
        United States industrial power;
            (3) the industrial strength of automobile manufacturing was 
        vital to defending freedom and democracy in 2 world wars and 
        played a defining role in American victories;
            (4) the economic strength of our Nation is connected 
        integrally to the vitality of the automobile industry, which 
        employs millions of workers and upon which 1 out of 7 United 
        States jobs depends;
            (5) the industrial and cultural heritage of the automobile 
        industry in Michigan includes the social history and living 
        cultural traditions of several generations;
            (6) the United Auto Workers and other unions played a 
        significant role in the history and progress of the labor 
        movement and the automobile industry;
            (7) the Department of the Interior is responsible for 
        protecting and interpreting the Nation's cultural and historic 
        resources, and there are significant examples of these resources 
        within Michigan to merit the involvement of the Federal 
        Government to develop programs and projects in cooperation with 
        the Automobile National Heritage Area Partnership, Incorporated, 
        the State of Michigan, and other local and governmental bodies, 
        to adequately conserve, protect, and interpret

        this and future generations of Americans;
            (8) the Automobile National Heritage Area Partnership, 
        Incorporated would be an appropriate entity to oversee the 
        development of the Automobile National Heritage Area; and

        Detroit'' and ``The Machine That Changed the World'', and a 
        National Park Service study, ``Labor History Theme Study: Phase

        historical resources exist to establish the Automobile National 
        Heritage Area.

    (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this title is to establish the 
Automobile National Heritage Area to--
            (1) foster a close working relationship with all levels of

        opportunities; and

        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 
        fighters.
            (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 
        Southeast.

[[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 
        possible.
            (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 
        transportation personnel.
            (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.

SEC. 505. <<NOTE: California.>>  ROSIE THE RIVETER NATIONAL PARK SERVICE 
            AFFILIATED SITE.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) The City of Richmond, California, is located on the 
        northeastern shore of San Francisco Bay and consists of several 
        miles of waterfront which have been used for shipping and 
        industry since the beginning of the 20th century. During the 
        years of World War II, the population of Richmond grew from 220 
        to over 100,000.
            (2) An area of Richmond, California, now known as Marina 
        Park and Marina Green, was the location in the 1940's of the 
        Richmond Kaiser Shipyards, which produced Liberty and Victory 
        ships during World War II.
            (3) Thousands of women of all ages and ethnicities moved 
        from across the United States to Richmond, California, in search 
        of high paying jobs and skills never before available to women 
        in the shipyards.

[[Page 112 STAT. 3263]]

            (4) Kaiser Corporation supported women workers by installing 
        child care centers at the shipyards so mothers could work while 
        their children were well cared for nearby.
            (5) These women, referred to as ``Rosie the Riveter'' and 
        ``Wendy the Welder'', built hundreds of Liberty and Victory 
        ships in record time for use by the United States Navy. Their 
        labor played a crucial role in increasing American productivity 
        during the war years and in meeting the demand for naval ships.
            (6) In part the Japanese plan to defeat the United States 
        Navy was predicated on victory occurring before United States 
        shipyards could build up its fleet of ships.
            (7) The City of Richmond, California, has dedicated the 
        former site of Kaiser Shipyard #2 as Rosie the Riveter Memorial 
        Park and will construct a memorial honoring American women's 
        labor during World War II. The memorial will be representative 
        of one of the Liberty ships built on the site during the war 
        effort.
            (8) The City of Richmond, California, is committed to 
        collective interpretative oral histories for the public to learn 
        of the stories of the ``Rosies'' and ``Wendys'' who worked in 
        the shipyards.
            (9) The Rosie the Riveter Park is a nationally significant 
        site because there tens of thousands of women entered the 
        workforce for the first time, working in heavy industry to 
        support their families and the War effort. This was a turning 
        point for the Richmond, California, area and the Nation as a 
        whole, when women joined the workforce and successfully 
        completed jobs for which previously it was believed they were 
        incapable.

    (b) Study.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary of the Interior shall conduct

                site to the National Park Service; and
                    (B) the Rosie the Riveter Memorial Committee 
                established by the City of Richmond, California, with 
                respect to that park is eligible for technical 
                assistance for interpretative functions relating to the 
                park, including preservation of oral histories from 
                former works at the Richmond Kaiser Shipyards.
