Bessie and Bill - Black Wings in Flight
Black History Month
Available Tour Dates: January 27, 2014 – February 7, 2014
Recommended for Grades K-8
Have you ever wanted to fly? In the newest show from the series "The Greatest Stories Never Told", the hopes and dreams of two African American pioneers of aviation show us that the sky’s the limit. Bessie Coleman, a sharecropper's daughter of African American and Cherokee descent, became the first female African American pilot and captured the hearts and imaginations of Americans in the 1920's. Pilot and engineer William Powell set his sights on the sky, wanting to lift others up on wings of success. The determination and pride of these early fliers inspires audiences to aim high and work hard so they can “fly free” like Bessie and Bill.


Lions of Industry, Mothers of Invention
Black History Month
Available Tour Dates: February 10, 2014 – February 28, 2014
Recommended for Grades K-8
This interactive play honors the creativity and genius of African American entrepreneurs and inventors like beauty innovator Madam C.J. Walker, “peanut man” George Washington Carver, academic giant Booker T. Washington, and even cranky potato chip inventor George Crum. The play demonstrates how the featured inventors all solved a problem or fulfilled a need and how great things originate and develop with an idea, imagination, and the belief that you can make it happen. Students will see that with creativity and commitment, they too can make improvements to the world around us.
