Bessie Coleman: Daring to Flyby Sally M. Walker, Nicolas Debon, Shannon Zemlicka
High in the sky, Bessie Coleman could soar like a bird. She was freeat least until she landed. As a black woman in the 1920s, she wasn't allowed to learn how to fly. Forced to travel to France to learn, she became the first African American woman to earn her pilot's license. Whether she was wing-walking, giving a speech, parachuting, or flying, Coleman inspired people with her bravery and resolve.
