Inspired by the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American Army Air Corps fighters who flew over the skies of Europe and North Africa during World War II. Written by Trey Ellis and Ricardo Khan, Fly dramatizes the historic contributions made by the Tuskegee Airmen to the desegregation of the American military and the furthering of civil rights as they face segregation, racism, and a world war with courage, humor, and humanity. The New York Times described Fly as “a superior piece of theatrical synergy.” Featuring theater senior Nemo Teferi and directed by professional guest director Whitney White.
