The Black Swallow of Death: The Tale of Eugene Bullard (REBROADCAST of Episode 13)

I’m taking a few weeks off from the podcast, and since it’s Black History Month, I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight a few of the stories that I’ve done that honor the contributions and legacies of Black Americans.   This week I’m going back to the thirteenth episode of Tell Me What to Google. Here’s “The Black Swallow of Death: The Tale of Eugene Bullard”, originally broadcast on November 30 of 2020.

Not many Americans know about the first black fighter pilot, Eugene Bullard. He was one of the most decorated War Heroes in France, fought in two world wars, was a spy, a jazz drummer, a boxer…and he was an American. In this episode, we explore the history of this amazing man.
