Tearing up the skies with her daredevil dives, barnstorming Bessie Coleman flew low and zoomed high. Audiences gasped when Bessie performed barrel rolls and the wings of her plane touched the tips of the clouds like a bird on high. Bessie was the first Black woman to earn a pilot’s license in America. No flight school would accept her in the US because she was Black, so she learned to fly in France. Bessie performed spectacular air shows across the US and her fearless spirit and flare for drama made her queen of the air. This sassy French trained pilot comes ready for flight adorned with goggles, vintage scarf, map and interchangeable heads. She has multiple joint pins, enabling her to strike many poses from jumping into her plane to waving to her fans.
