I can’t believe I came so close to a great photo op with Lamman Rucker and didn’t actually get to take my pic with him! Yea, THE Lamman from Tyler Perry’s recent “Why Did I Get Married Too“?Oh, if it wasn’t for that PR woman trying to whisk him off to an “exit interview”. Ok, yea I know, he ain’t Obama or, let’s see, Denzel Washington but I tell ya, he’s a fine black man. Enough of that. I rubbed shoulders with this Hollywood star and the other actors of Black Angels Over Tuskegee this weekend when the play came to the city. Lamman, imma get you next time! I promise.
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.
