"Like the Tuskegee airmen, we are forced to question the righteousness and justice of every American war. “Black Eagles” recaptures Black History and makes it live."

"Like a wise and compassionate commanding officer, director L. Peter Callender coaxes the individual stories into the spotlight, drawing emotionally honest performances from a cast with variable performance skills." 

Robert Sokol, SF Examiner

"One has the mistaken impression that one of the simplest things to portray as an actor is drunkenness. Wrong.  These talented actors under Callender’s superb direction, slowly, gradually and naturally grew more inebriated as the scene progressed while maintaining their characters."

Gaetana Caldwell-Smith, For All Events
