The Arts Council of Central Louisiana is proud to present Layon Gray’s Black Angels Over Tuskegee.  Vibrantly energetic and emotionally captivating, Black Angels Over Tuskegee continues to enlighten and educate Off-Broadway audiences after an extended opening.  The Arts Council is excited to bring the outstanding talents of Peabody High alumnus, Layon Gray, back to his Alexandria roots.

Black Angels Over Tuskegee is one of the longest running productions Off-Broadway! Originally opening in January 2010 for a two-month engagement, the award-winning, historical docudrama is a narrative of six men embarking upon a journey to become the first aviators in the United States Army Air Forces during a tumultuous era of racial segregation and Jim Crow idealism in twentieth century American history. Black Angels Over Tuskegee is inspired by true events and endorsed by the real Tuskegee airmen themselves!

Black Angels Over Tuskegee will be presented on Saturday, September 14th at 7 PM at Coughlin-Saunders Performing Arts Center.

WINNER – NAACP Award | WINNER – ADA Award!

“Doing triple duty as a playwright, director, and actor, Layon Gray presents a compelling and heart felt look at an all too often over looked aspect of black, military, and American history with his absolutely brilliant drama Black Angels Over Tuskegee.” – The Epoch Times

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors (65+), $10 for students/children (ages 3 & up), and $50 for a family (2 adults and 2 children).
