An important history lesson was given Tuesday at NDSU. US Air Force veteran Ron Spriggs visited campus to tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Spriggs says wanting to keep future generations educated on the Tuskegee legacy is why he continues to honor them.

"We don't want the history of the tuskegee Airmen to die. They were very good at what they did in World War II as escort and bomber pilots and we want our children to know that, your children to know that as well," said Spriggs.

Spriggs says the Tuskegee Airmen's biggest legacy is overcoming segregation during world war 2 while at the same time helping win the war.
