#Black History Month: First Black Licensed Pilot “Bessie Coleman”

This is history right here people. Bessie Coleman was not only the first black licensed pilot but also the first black woman to have a license in flying. She made us women look good and that is a role model. It’s crazy that everyone only talks about Amelia Earhart but it’s ok because we save it for times like this. Where she can be respected yearly with everyone else. She was really beautiful and for some reason I saw my aunt in her face. Scary but Bessie Coleman was beautiful. She paved the way for more female flyers. She passed away so young at the age of 34 which is heartbreaking. Her death was unfortunate and she will be remembered.
