In memory of William Holloman distinguished WWII “Red Tails Tuskegee Pilots” My inspiring TV Interview with the Lt Col William H. Holloman III an African American Tuskegee WWII Pilot, I had the opportunity to interview and filmed here in Hawaii in 2009, he past away in 2010, and we are proud to rebroadcast his interview in honor and memory of his life, inspiration to Humanity, to others and love for life.

His inspiration, energy and courage will never be forgotten. He shared that they were fighting two wars, “the War with Hitler and the Race War at home, both to preserve Democracy.”

In this up close and personal interview he speaks about his incredible life, honoring the incredible story of triumph of the Tuskegee Red Tails Pilots as one of the most successful World War II Bomber escort squadron, group of African American pilots who fought in World War II. They were the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group of the U.S. Army Air Corps. Prior to the Tuskegee Airmen, no African American had held the status and become a U.S. military pilot. Because of these efforts the Military was consider the first in the United States of America to integrate and dissolve segregation in the Military, and was an example to the U.S and the world. Still yet the obstacles continued for the squadron and several influential Congressmen and other white bureaucrat’s deemed the group un-intelligent, their brains un-evolved and unfit to participate in real time flights and war activities.

But it took The First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt in March of 1941 who went down to the air base and took flight with a Tuskegee Pilot to allow the participation of the pilots and their squadron in real war efforts and escort missions in Europe during World War II.

Many of the Tuskegee Airmen shared how they were treated better by the enemy, when taken prisoner by the German’s, then the were treated by people of their own Country.

A sad commentary that carry’s on even today as we heard the criticism that George Lucas shared in his interview with Oprah Winfrey. What he endured in the making of the latest movie featuring the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, that the Studio’s were not interested in a Movie about Black Pilots and there is no overseas market for such a Movie. But I was told first hand by “Tuskegee Pilot” Alexander Jefferson that he was treated better as a prisoner of war by the German’s in Europe than by American’s back home. Take that to the bank. And we have had the opportunity to film & interview Lt. Colonel Alexander Jefferson, and will be posting his interviews.

Lt Col William H. Holloman III, shared his ability to believe in himself, beyond his family, his community, the nation and the world. Reminding us of the importance of " preparing yourself to be the best of your ability, building for your future. To become exceptional, become the leader, not letting your circumstances, money, race, or people stand in your way or becoming barriers in fulfilling your life's purpose and dreams.
