Black Eagles

August 11-20

by Leslie Lee


Directed by Deb Swerman


America's first black fighter pilots, the Tuskegee airmen, are the central focus of this historical drama. As they battle opponents in the skies over Europe and among their fellow flyers back at base, we discover the bravery, humor and resilience that helped to change the fate of the world and the face of our nation.



Sergeant Steven Wilber
"I was introduced to this opportunity by the director of my church's drama ministry. I am intrigued with African-American history and it just so happened that it was military-based, as I am a currently serving military member."

David Smith
"Being  a military vet myself, I can relate to the ups and downs and social challenges that the Tuskegee Airmen went through.
They supported each other and their legacy is the story of the 'Black Eagles.'"
