Harold Brown served as one of America's original "Tuskegee Airmen." He flew combat missions with the 332nd Fighter Group during World War II.

His 2017 memoir is called "Keep Your Airspeed Up: The Story of a Tuskegee Airman."

He joins us for a conversation about segregation, finding hope as a POW, and how a group of men changed the face of the American military by demanding their right to serve their country in the air.
