“WINGS OF COURAGE” PLAY SCREENING Performed by Mad River Theater Works with special guest speaker Robert F. Jefferson Jr.

Oct 18, 2021 | 7:30 PM | John and Alice Butler Hall - Heritage Center

Wings of Courage is an original play with music that tells the remarkable story of the first African American to fly a plane in combat. Set in the early 20th century in the years leading up to World War I, this one-act drama explores the unbelievable life of Eugene Bullard, a professional boxer, World War I flying ace, jazz musician, and spy. The color of Bullard’s skin prevented him from taking his place alongside other American heroes of his day, but that did not stop him. Wings of Courage shows how Bullard’s determination and perseverance helped him overcome discrimination throughout his life. It is an uplifting tale of vision and hope. Robert F. Jefferson Jr. is an authority on African American history with specific expertise on the African American military experience. Jefferson will follow the “Wings of Courage.”
