Inspired by Adventerous Women :: Bessie Coleman
Bessie Coleman became the first black female pilot in the world, despite facing both gender and race discrimination in her quest to do so.
As she was banned from taking lessons in the U.S, she had to travel to France for flying lessons. She eventually returned home, where she performed in aerial shows and championed for an African-American flight school. Coleman refused to participate in segregated events, and became a voice for female and black Americans who were facing discrimination.
