The 332nd Fighter group has a unique place in the annals of WWII air force fighter groups. The group was completely Black.

Included are interviews with Alfred Anderson, Lee Archer, and Roscoe Brown

The private life of a masterpiece ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This film tells the story of Gauguin and his painting "God's Child," a reinterpretation of the nativity scene in which he used his 14-year-old, pregnant Tahitian mistress as his model. The most unusual feature of the painting is the way that it presents Mary. Traditionally, decorum prevented Mary from being depicted as if she had really gone through the painful experience of labor, but Gauguin's Mary is clearly worn out from the process of giving birth. It was also extremely daring to show Mary partially naked in a Nativity scene
