Wings of Courage comes to WSCC

Wings of Courage

The Evergreen Arts & Humanities Series at Washington State Community College (WSCC) in collaboration with the Washington State Foundation and the Schwendeman Agency, Inc. announce the upcoming family-friendly performance of “Wings of Courage” performed by Mad River Works.

The play will be presented on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 7:30 p.m., in Graham Auditorium located in the Arts & Sciences building on the campus of WSCC. Admission to the performance is free, but be mindful that seating is limited.

“Wings of Courage” is an original play with music by Mad River Theater Works 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 was a professional boxer and a World War I flying ace. He was also a jazz musician and a spy.

Using storytelling, music, and drama, “Wings of Courage” shows how Bullard’s determination and perseverance helped him to overcome discrimination throughout his remarkable life. It is an uplifting tale of vision and hope that deserves to be known by every American.
