MBT Wade Bennett King Education Series Presents:

Wings of Courage

Discover:   Creativity and determination can outpace discrimination and ignorance * You have the power to make your life

Wings of Courage is a play based on the life of Eugene Bullard, the first African-American combat pilot and adventurer. Bullard’s story would be unbelievable if it were not all true:  he traveled with a minstrel show, was a professional boxer, a World War I flying ace, a jazz musician, and a spy. He flew against the famous “Red Baron,” and when the color of Bullard’s skin prevented him from taking his place with other American war heroes, he went on to fame as a Paris bandleader.

Pack for:  A tale of vision and hope that deserves to be known by every American.

Storytelling, music, and drama.  Examples of determination and perseverance

Core Audience:  Grades 3 and up

Curriculum Connections: Theatre, Music, Communication, Social Studies (United States History, World History, World War I, African American History)
