The 1988 Calendar of Black History
Aetna's 1988 calendar focused on 11 individuals and one group credited with admirable achievements, including Caroline V. Still Anderson, a pioneer woman physician; Oscar Micheaux, an inductee into the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame; Richard Allen, the founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church; Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, the king of tap dancers; and Tuskegee Airmen of Tuskegee Army Air Field, where the first black military flying unit was activated. The group earned one of the best combat records during World War II, including a Presidential Unit Citation in March 1945.
