Program Description

This presentation uncovers and appreciates the power, ingenuity, and strength of Bessie Coleman. The circumstances surrounding her life might suggest that obtaining basic needs would be sufficient. Yet, she exceeded acquiring the basics and forged forward as a pioneer in territory only moderately developed — aviation. She propelled beyond barriers in a male-dominated arena and became a flyer.
