  • In 1978, NASA selected a new class of astronauts for the space shuttle program, including its first African American astronauts, first Asian American astronaut, and first women astronauts. These individuals brought varied talents to the astronaut corps as pilots, medical doctors, scientists, engineers, and military officers. Prior to the space shuttle program, no American woman ever flew in space with NASA.

Alonzo Swann

Black sailors served with distinction on board Intrepid and throughout the U.S. military during World War II. Yet relatively few Black service members received recognition for their valor. After facing down a kamikaze attack in 1944, Alonzo Swann spent years pressing the U.S. Navy for appropriate recognition. Read about his journey here.
