Bessie Coleman, Barnstorming Pioneer

Bessie Coleman was the first black person to earn an international aviation license from the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale. The History Guy remembers the fearless "Queen Bess" who inspired a generation of aviation pioneers. Her life is history that deserves to be remembered.
