Black aviators faced many hurdles during WWII. An American pilot, James L. Peck, was unable to achieve active service during the war because of his race. He went on to become a successful aviation writer. He wrote a very interesting piece about a Ferry Command pilot's experience transporting a Hudson across the Atlantic. I've posted his article: Bomber to Britain.
