My favorite performer, Beyonce, is highlighting amazing African Americans that we may not often recognize. I think this is brilliant, and I've decided to share one with you that I believe is an excellent example of leadership! Often times, we can only think of those who were in the spotlight such as Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks. The magnificeince of the others is just as great! Look below to learn more about the stunning, Bessie Coleman:
Born to a Native American father and an African American mother, Bessie Coleman faced many hardships during her childhood. After seeing some newsreels on aviation, she became interested in becoming a pilot, but no U.S flight schools would accept her because she was a black female. She saved enough money to go to France where women could be pilots. In 1921, she became the fir...st black woman in the world to own a pilot's license.
