TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — As we celebrate Black History Month, it's important keep in mind that many of the occurrences we often discuss happened in this same lifetime.

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black pilots to fly in the U-S Military. That was in the 1940's - still 20 years before the civil rights act.

Tuskegee Airman Lieutenant Colonel George Hardy, 96, spoke about the changes he's witnessed over the years.
