Wings of Courage
Play Screening – 7:30 PM @ University of Dubuque Heritage Center
Wings of Courage, a play from Mad River Theater Works, tells the story of the first African American to fly a plane in combat. Set in the 20th century, it explores the life of Eugene Bullard, boxer, World War I flying ace, jazz musician, and spy. The color of Bullard’s skin prevented him from taking place alongside American heroes. Dr. Robert F. Jefferson Jr. follows with a presentation on African American military experience. Admission: $10.
