When excellence meets opportunity under the umbrella of equality, everyone benefits.
Last year, Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. was celebrated as the first African American Air Force chief of staff. To put the accomplishment in perspective, only 6 percent of Air Force officers are African American. The number of African American pilots, fighter pilots and four-star generals is even smaller, relative to the overall force. Hence, Brown’s selection is both historic and statistically unlikely. However, Air Force history and Black history are filled with the unlikely firsts of exceptional leaders.
