Summary
The true history of a friendship that almost wasn't. Herb was white and John was black. They grew up in the same neighborhood and attended the same third grade class. Both became members of the Army Air Forces and flew war planes in World War II. Even so, they did not become friends until years later. They then began a mission to tell young people why race once made all the difference and why it shouldn't anymore.--B.I.P
Summary
Follows two men--both of whom went to the same school and fought in the same war, but who never met because one was white and one was black--as they meet fifty years after World War II and join forces to tell young people why race once made all the difference--and why it shouldn't matter anymore
