About Bessie Coleman:
Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman was an American civil aviator. She was the first female pilot of African American descent and the first person of African-American descent to hold an international pilot license.
I decided blacks should not have to experience the difficulties I had faced, so I decided to open a flying school and teach other black women to fly.
I refused to take no for an answer.
The air is the only place free from prejudice.
You've never lived till you've flown!
If I can create the minimum of my plans and desires, there shall be no regrets.
