WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — More than a decade after the death of trailblazing Air Force General Benjamin Davis Jr., the U.S. Military Academy is honoring the man it once ostracized. When Davis entered West Point in 1932 as its only black cadet, the future Tuskegee Airman spent four years being shunned, rooming alone and eating alone. But now, a cadet barracks being built at West Point will be named for him. Davis Barracks is expected to house cadets starting in January 2017.

The Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara buddy comedy made just over $13 million, according to weekend estimates.
