Bessie Coleman Remembered

Bessie Coleman, born in 1892, was an American daredevil aviator who died on April 30, 1926.

She was the world’s first black female aviator to obtain a pilot’s license (1921). Her father was of mostly Cherokee descent, making her also the first female of native American descent to earn a pilot’s license. U.S. pilot schools were unwilling to take a black female student, so she learned French and went to Paris to earn her license.

She died in a plane crash while preparing for a show. While flying as a passenger with a student pilot, the plane suffered a mechanical failure and spun out of control. Not seat belted in, she fell out of the plane and plummeted to her death. The pilot died in the crash.
