    ALL BLOOD RUNS RED (PT III): THE TRUE STORY OF EUGENE BULLARD, THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN FIGHTER PILOT

    ALL BLOOD RUNS RED (PT III): THE TRUE STORY OF EUGENE BULLARD, THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN FIGHTER PILOT

    In "All Blood Runs Red Part III", we tell the story of Bullard's escape from war torn France to Spain and then Portugal, where, suffering from wounds and exhaustion, he is placed upon a ship bound for New York. Upon reaching New York, he reunites with other veterans of the war, his daughters are returned, he visits the south of his boyhood only to find it hasn't changed- finding his older brother has been lynched. In New York City he is encouraged to write his story 'All Blood Runs Red", which is re-authored and released as "The Black Swallow of Death", and he appears on the Today Show with Dave Garroway. During his later years in New York, he is visited by de Gaulle, and brought to France to be one of three men to light the Eternal Flame of the Unknown Soldier before being knighted by France for his sacrifice.

    JOAN OF ARC (PART TWO) DREAMS NEVER DIE

    JOAN OF ARC (PART TWO) DREAMS NEVER DIE

    Joan of Arc leads France to a series of victories against the English until she is captured and imprisoned. She is given an unjust and illegal trial and the Catholic Bishop declares her to be a heretic- after which she is burned at the stake.. We discuss what the world might look like had France not won its freedom against England, and most historians believe that Joan of Arc was primarily responsible for France winning the One Hundred Years War.

    JOAN OF ARC (PART 1) THE PROPHECY

    JOAN OF ARC (PART 1) THE PROPHECY

    In 1425 France was reeling from decades of war with with England and almost all hope was gone, The French people, never giving up hope, found solace in an old prophecy that had come from centuries ago. The prophecy stated "A woman shall loose France...but it shall be redeemed once again by a virgin from the border of Lorraine". The first part of the prophecy had been fulfilled when the Queen of France, Queen Isabeau, had committed the ultimate treason- she had signed a treaty with the King of England declaring that her eldest son Charles was illegitimate and promised the hand of the next in line to succession, her daughter Catherine, to the King of England, As city after city fell to the invading army of England, all hope rested on the 26 year old Dauphin Charles, who refused to give up his right to the throne despite his mother's dealings with England. At the same time a young peasant girl from a small village of Donremy near the border of Lorraine had a series of visions in which God had asked her to drive the English out of France and see to it that Charles was crowned King. She had everything against her from the start- but she had two enduring qualities-faith and courage.
