Video: Bessie Coleman: Flying the Blues

Part 1

Part 2


  1. Check out what my favorite actress Angela Basset had to say about pioneering aviatrix Bessie Coleman.

    "I want to play some made up people now! [Laughs] I’m ready for some fiction…But I think there was a time when I was interested in playing Bessie Coleman, someone a lot of people don’t know of. She was the first African-American female aviator. But that was a period piece that never got off the ground." check out "Bessie Coleman Flying the Blues" at
