COLORADO SPRINGS - In the Honor Court near the Air Force Academy Chapel stands a life-size bronze statue of an African-American in a World War II pilot's uniform, honoring the Tuskegee Airmen, the first black fighter pilots ever to fly for the U.S. The statue, The Black Airman, stands not only as a tribute to the legendary squadron but also as a legacy of the man who sculpted it, Clarence Laudric Shivers, a Tuskegee Airman himself, and an artist who crafted the statue in his first attempt at large sculpture. Shivers, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel and artist who had lived in Colorado Springs since 1979, died Feb. 17. He was 83
The Black Airman,” outside the Cadet Chapel at the Air Force Academy.
He created the Miller Brewing Company´s 1983 civil rights calendar and did the artwork for their 1986 calendar.
In 1993, Clarence and his wife, Peggy, a music teacher and operatic soprano, endowed the Shivers African-American Historical and Cultural Collection of the Pikes Peak Library District, and The Celebration Concert Series

Statement from the artist
"One has to admire the quiet dignity and steadfast determination in the nonviolent efforts of Black Americans to right the wrongs of America. The fight for freedom cannot be won once and for all in a single decisive battle. The struggle is a never ending one. The commission to produce the Civil Rights artwork is a highlight in my artistic career. It has allowed me to meet and relive the experiences of some of the most important people in the world. I love you and with this artwork, I salute you." (Source: Gallery of Greats: The Civil Rights Movement)
