The first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps were known as the Tuskegee Airmen, after the Tuskegee Army Air Field where they trained. The group flew over 15,000 individual sorties during World War II which earned them over 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses.  
1948 · The Dixiecrats

Age 23

Dixiecrats were members of a right-wing splinter group who opposed federal intervention on state matters such as race and labor relations. After failing to prevent the nomination of Harry Truman at the Democratic National Convention, over 6,000 people from 13 southern states met at the Dixiecrat Convention in Birmingham on July 17, 1948. Here, Governor Strom Thurmond was nominated for president and Governor Fielding L. Wright was nominated for vice president. The Dixiecrats hoped to win enough electoral-college votes in the southern states to prevent either Republican or Democrat nominee from winning enough electoral votes for election. Truman was elected on November 2, 1948, and the Dixiecrats received only 39 electoral votes.
