For use in schools and libraries only. Bessie Coleman was forced to travel to France to fulfill her dream of earning a pilot's license. She became the first African American woman to do so, and whether she was wing-walking, giving a speech, parachuting, or flying, Coleman inspired people with her bravery and resolve.
