In Black Angels Over Tuskegee, which is based on true events, "six men explore their collective struggle with Jim Crow, their intelligence, patriotism, dreams of an inclusive fair society, and brotherhood as they become the first African American fighter pilots in the U.S. Army Air Forces," according to press notes.

Black Angels Over Tuskegee is being produced Off-Broadway by The Black Gents, Edmund Gaynes and The Layon Gray Experience.

Saint-Victor's stage appearances include Six Degrees of Separation, Night of the Iguana and The Winter’s Tale. He received an Audelco Award for Black Moon Rising.
