Summary

Jesse Leroy Brown was born in 1926 to sharecroppers in the segregated South. An outstanding student and top athlete, he set his sights on becoming a Navy pilot despite the resistance of his family and the rampant Jim Crow laws. Brown qualified for the Navy Reserve and was accepted into the Naval Air Training School at Glenview, Illinois. He was the first African American to enter the program and subsequently fly a Navy fighter and make a carrier landing. Based on archival documents and interviews with those who knew Brown, The Flight of Jesse Leroy Brown is both a stirring story of a man breaking historic racial barriers and a thrilling tale of naval carrier aviation and combat. Book jacket.
