Ace: The Eugene Bullard Story - 3/30/17 at 7:30pm
World premiere! In 1909, a 12-year-old black child flees his hometown of Columbus, Ga., becomes a jockey, and works his way north as a vaudeville performer and prize fighter. In New York, Eugene Bullard hops a freighter to Europe and starts earning a living in the boxing ring just as World War I breaks out. What follows is the stuff of legend: The French Foreign Legion, a career as the world's first black fighter pilot, the Croix de Guerre and post-war success as a jazz club owner in Paris. During World War II, he becomes a spy against the Nazis and eventually has to escape to the U.S. In spite of his celebrated military heroism, Bullard returns to a segregated America and takes a job as an elevator operator at Rockefeller Center.
