The first Black American military pilot led a stunning career in wartime France

Bullard is one of American history’s true BAMFs. A more just nation would already have produced at least one action movie and a remake based on his life.


There he led a life of staggering accomplishment, becoming by turns a prizefighter, a combat pilot, a nightclub impresario, and a spy.

Now that’s a life, and as POC in those times, a true testament of his courage, fortitude. Dear Sir, I stand and salute you, the accolades are long over due.
