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

Winner of the 2009 NAACP Award for Best Ensemble and 2009 Hollywood Artistic Director Achievement Award for Best Play, the production has received rave reviews from topcritics including The New York Times who describe the performance as "Uplifting and Inspirational: and "Tough to Resist!".
