Filmmaker and CSGS alumnus Billy Tooma (D.Litt 2017) will screen and discuss his newest documentary, The Black Eagle of Harlem, as well as the art of filmmaking.

The Black Eagle of Harlem is a study in biography and forgotten history. Col. Hubert Fauntleroy Julian—aviator, soldier of fortune and arms dealer—led a life of high adventure, finding himself at the center and periphery of major world events. The challenge of telling the most honest version of Julian’s story is what drove this project. The documentary spawned from this study utilizes a combination of interviews, archival materials, voiceovers and original artwork to recreate the amazing—sometimes unbelievable—life of the Black Eagle, one of the 20th century’s most intriguing icons.

The Werner Kofler Arts & Letters Endowment was endowed in 2011 by Werner Kofler T’03, G’05, to provide a Doctor of Letters discussion group for the Arts & Letters program in the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies.
