The Luft Gangster - At 93 years old, Lt. Col. Alexander Jefferson, USAF (Ret) recalls his trials and tribulations from early childhood racism in America to his segregated military experience and overseas combat deployment in WWII. He tells of his stay as a P.O.W. in Nazi Germany and recalls his sobering walk through Dachau Concentration Camp, which was liberated only 2 days earlier. After heroically serving his country in the world’s worst war, Alex joyfully returned home only to be greeted by racism, bigotry and segregation.
