Dr. Roscoe C. Brown Jr. dies at age ninety four,
Dr. Brown flew as one of the Tuskegee Airman…
during WW II, an advocate of racial equality and
education, his best foot forward and full life span,
68 combat missions and commanded the very
famous group of valiant heros, being a runner,
Dr. Brown completed the NY Marathon nine times
during his life, the Congressional Medal of Honor
recipient received The Distinguished Flying Cross…
and the Air Medal with eight Oak Leaf Clusters,
to defeat a stereotype that African-Americans didn’t
have the intelligence or ability to do it, myth busters
are the best… for he was one of the Pathfinders for
equality… his life speaks loudly and longly for truth,
so let it not be said,”There was none among us that
stood out… as a Leader back then,” here the proof.
With a labored effort for all he believed in, Dr. Roscoe Brown Jr. leaves most of us in the dust. See a brief telling of his life here and please watch the video below for a little more.
“There was a time in American history when a group of men crossed lines to fight something bigger than racism, they fought fascism.”
“Excellence overcomes prejudice.”
Dr. Roscoe Brown
