As Sonny would eventually achieve his dreams (of winning the science fair, working for NASA, etc. ), he was only granted those chances of opportunity by the encouragement and generosity of the citizens of Coalwood. Sonny soon gains a large division of support, as the group is made up of adults and friends that understand and appreciate Sonny’s ambitions. Such assistance can be seen with characters such as Mr. Bykovski, as he played in major role in the construction of the BCMA’s rockets. ““You want to thank me.” He nodded toward the box.
It is a great honor to have the chance to write about such an amazing group of men who not only made history, but broke through unimaginable barriers. The Tuskegee Airmen, who were members of the segregated black flying division of the Army Air Corps in Tuskegee, Alabama, were faced with many challenges, such as fighting oppression in a foreign country and racism, segregation, and discrimination at home.

Its name is Ben Carson’s Summer Program. Its aim was to educate and encourage the black youth to pursue a career and spark interests in the science field and, for me, that is exactly what happened.
