Set in the early 20th century in the years leading up to World War I, the one-act play explores the unbelievable life of Eugene Bullard, a professional boxer, flying ace, jazz musician, and spy. The color of Bullard’s skin prevented him from taking his place alongside the other American heroes of his day but that didn’t stop him. Wings of Courage shows how Bullard’s determination and perseverance helped him to overcome discrimination throughout his life. It is an uplifting tale of vision and hope. [TRAILER COMING SOON]
