Black History Month Event: Life and Times of Bessie Coleman: First African American Female Pilot

Just as other tales of pilots returning from World War I inspired us all, so did Bessie Coleman’s pioneering journey from the cotton fields of Texas to the skies above Paris. The first African American female pilot, Coleman became an inspiration to generations of pilots who followed her. Her tale is performed in an interactive one-woman show by her great-niece, Gigi Coleman.
