Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman lived during an era when Jim Crow laws and segregation were a way of life, but she didn't let that stop her. Although she was only 11 when the Wright brothers took their historic flight, she vowed to become the first African-American female pilot. Her sturdy faith and determination helped her overcome obstacles of poverty, racism, and gender discrimination. Full-color illustrations.
