At Black Then, we frequently see interesting photos that give us a glimpse into the past. They tend to show us a piece of black history that is often not covered in textbooks, in history classes, or shown in the media.
In a photo that we found on Black History Album , we see this great image called “African American WACs, World War II” . The picture shows Willa Beatrice Brown serving her country by training pilots for the U.S. Army Air Forces. She was the first African American woman to receive a commission as a lieutenant in the U.S. Civil Air Patrol.
