MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – This weekend, families are getting the unique opportunity to learn about a piece of history that’s often overlooked.

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American pilots to fight in World War II.

They navigated bombers and helped protect other pilots in the war.

A traveling exhibit celebrating their legacy stopped at the Shiloh Temple in Minneapolis on Saturday. It included Retired Tuskegee Airman Major Joseph Gomer.

In the video above, photojournalist Tony Peterson shows us how this exhibit is bringing history books to life.
