200 Alabama Bicentennial

Celebrating Alabama’s 200th birthday2017 2018 2019

The Alabama Shakespeare Festival and the Alabama Bicentennial Commission celebrate the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen with the Alabama premiere of the dynamic play Fly, which showcases the history of the first black pilots in the United States military. 

The New York Times described Fly as “a superior piece of theatrical synergy.” With a focus on hope, endurance, and accomplishment, Fly tells the story of the first African-American Army Air Corps fighters who flew over the skies of Europe and North Africa during World War II. Fly dramatizes the historic contributions made by the Tuskegee Airmen to the desegregation of the American military and the furthering of civil rights.
