Thanks for raising your voice!
On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States was assassinated. Ranked as a favorite President among American citizens, he had been in office a brief 1,000 days; his death changed the futures of many. Specifically, that of former test pilot and the 1st African American astronaut candidate appointed by the Kennedy administration, Captain (USAF Ret.) Ed Dwight, Jr.
The death of President Kennedy and discrimination during the civil rights era dictated that he would never realize his dream of becoming an astronaut and experiencing first hand the – big blue marble – from space.
We of the aeronautical and aviation industry ask the Federal Government to recognize 1st African American Astronaut Candidate Ed Dwight as an  “HONORARY ASTRONAUT.”
