The Black Eagle of Harlem (2017)
A Film by Billy Tooma
The story of one of the
20th century's most interesting icons. From parachutist to pilot to
soldier of fortune, Col. Hubert Fauntleroy Julian led a life of high
adventure. Born in Trinidad in 1897, he made his way to New York
City where he quickly drew headlines for his aeronautical exploits.
Throughout the 1930s, Julian made three separate trips to Ethiopia,
ultimately leaving once the Italian invasion began. After World War
II he saw himself employed as an arms dealer to several volatile
governments of the international community. After living a
not-so-quiet life in retirement, he passed away in 1983.
