Eugene Bullard was the world’s first black combat aviator, flying in French squadrons during World War I (1917-18). Before he became a pilot he served in the French Foreign Legion and was awarded the Croix De Guerre.
Eugene Bullard is performed by actor Chadd Gray. Chadd Gray is a budding actor from Voorhees, New Jersey. At 20 years old, he has graduated from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy’s conservatory program, located in NYC. Trained in classical and contemporary acting forms, for both the stage and film, he has played characters ranging from Shakespeare’s ever calculating Richard III to the hopelessly confused teenager, Bleeker, in Juno.
As the year comes to a close, Chadd has plans to continue his education to earn his degree while also starting his YouTube channel where he can post original content written, directed, and filmed by himself and other creatives.
