"Best known as the commander of the Imperial Ethiopian Air Force after Italy invaded Ethiopia in 1935, John C. Robinson sparked an interest in aviation among African Americans. But Robinson's achievements predate the Italo-Ethiopian War. After graduating from Tuskegee Institute, he became the first black student and teacher at Chicago's Curtiss-Wright Aeronautical School-and, in May 1934, first planted the seed for the establishment of an aviation school at Tuskegee Institute. The World War II exploits of the Tuskegee Airmen-America's first African American military aviators-is testament to Robinson's efforts.In Father of the Tuskegee Airmen, Philip Thomas Tucker pays tribute to one of history's great black aviation pioneers."
