Bessie Coleman

Bessie Coleman

An air show barnstormer in the 1920's, Bessie Coleman was an African-American, female pilot at a time when the business of air shows was dominated by white males. Persevering in difficult circumstances, she toured the country as an aerobatic plot, parachute jumper and occasional motivational speaker.
