Black Angels Over Tuskegee is a story told in narrative of six men embarking on a journey to become pilots in the United States Army Air Forces. The play explores their collective struggle with Jim Crow; challenging their intelligence, patriotism, brotherhood, and dreams of an inclusive and fair society. The play goes beyond the headlines of popular stories and reveals the heart and soul of the Tuskogee Airmen who exhibited courage to excel, in spite of all the overwhelming odds against them.

Critics’ Reviews

This show is also tough to resist.

Review by Jason Zinoman from The New York Times

Some plays teach, others celebrate, and a few simply entertain. 'Black Angels Over Tuskegee' manages to do all three and one thing more: It inspires.
