“Gene Bullard came out of poverty in the deep south with barely a second grade education and rose to the highest levels of a number of different experiences and talents throughout his whole life that made Tom and I think that, in the beginning, that this is really 10 guys and not just one guy.” – Phil Keith

Hey Fam,

It’s Black History Month on Enlighten Me and African-American history makers past and present are all around us.

The son of an enslaved African in the Americas, we’ll take a look at the incredible life story of Eugene Bullard, the first African American military pilot in WWI, who went on to become a self-taught jazz musician, a Paris nightclub impresario, a spy in the French Resistance and an American civil rights pioneer.

The fact that many have never heard his life story is a testament to the many stories of ancestors that we have yet to uncover.

Tune in every Wednesday from 4-5p ET to Enlighten Me on WERA-FM, 96.7 or check us out online:
