Women in History: Bessie Coleman

Primary tabs

Have lunch with our Friends of the Library and Aviatrix Bessie Coleman.  Bessie was the first woman of African-American and Native American descent to hold a pilot’s license.  Barred from flight school in the U.S, Bessie worked hard and saved her money to attend school in France. Her achievement serves as an inspiration to women to follow their dreams.  Meet Bessie courtesy of Women in History. 

Tickets are available in the library beginning Monday, February 19 for $12/members and $15/nonmembers.
