Black History First: Bessie Coleman
First African American Female Pilot

Bessie Coleman was an American civil aviator who became the first African American woman to earn an aviation pilot license.
Born in 1892 to a family of sharecroppers in Texas, Coleman developed an early interest in flying. Since American flight schools did not admit women nor African Americans, Bessie moved to France to become a licensed pilot.
