Pilot Bessie Coleman

ca. 1921 — This photograph of Bessie Coleman in her leather flying helmet, with goggles, and fur-trimmed flight jacket appeared on her Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) pilot’s license. Unable to secure flight training in the United States, she went to France and earned her license. She received the first pilot’s license issued to an African American, male or female, from the Federation Aeronautique Internationale. — Image by © Smithsonian Institution/Corbis
