Bessie Coleman (1892-1926) was the first African American woman to earn an aviator’s license.  Unable to find anyone willing to train a black woman to fly in the US, Bessie learned French so that she could learn to fly in France.  She was the first American of any race or gender to earn an international pilot’s license.  Bessie died at age 34 during a test flight for an exhibition in Jacksonville, Florida.
