Not Right For WatchKnowLearn
WatchKnowLearn ratings are intentionally harsher than what you might find on YouTube, for example. Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad. Two is often watchable and shouldn't be ruled out.

  • 5 stars = Exemplary.
    Unusually helpful and well produced. Do not overuse this, please; it is not the standard rating for decent work, as it is elsewhere.
  • 4 stars = Very Good.
    Very helpful but not among the very best; adequately produced, at least.
  • 3 stars = Usable.
    Reasonably helpful, perhaps a bit amateurish in production or has some other problem; there is nothing wrong with a 3-star rating for amateur work!
  • 2 stars = Some Merit.
    Minimally helpful; not completely worthless or inappropriate; you can see how it might be useful to some people.
  • 1 star = Not Right for WatchKnowLearn.
    Not at all helpful, not educational, poorest quality, etc.; you can't see it being useful to anyone.

This thirteen-minute video is about the Tuskegee Airmen during
World War II in a segregated military, the Tuskegee Airmen distinquished themselves among aviators. These African-American aviators flew as fighter escort and protection on bombing runs. Their record of over 200 combat missions without losing a single bomber shows why they were respected by the American military and feared by the enemy. This video adds depth to both the civil rights battle these men faced and their actions in the war.

This film has some merit, however, it is a purely propaganda film that grossly distorts the true nature of why the Tuskegee Airmen experiment existed in the first place.  It fails to acknowledge the de jure and de facto segregation that existed in the U.S.  To show this film, the teacher MUST alert the students to the true nature of the Tuskegee experiment and the conditions under which these African-Americans operated. They were NOT welcome, NOT expected to succeed, and efforts were made to STOP the program entirely by leaders in the military and our government.  Granted, it is hard to find a good quality US government directed documentary of historical fact (except for first hand YOUTUBE documentaries interviewing the pilots telling their story) on the Tuskegee Airmen.  YOUTUBE has one documentary video posted and narrated by a WWII Tuskegee Veteran (Col Charles McGee). It was produced by DVIDS, and the title is "African Americans in Military History: Tuskegee Airmen".  It is A MUCH BETTER VIDEO for primary and secondary educators to display.  Link - https://youtu.be/nG_r6Kfb4g8
