Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman was an American civil aviator. She was the first female pilot of African American descent to earn a pilot's license. She gained her license two years before Amelia Earhart. Unable to train to be a pilot in the USA as a black woman, she learned French and went to France to study and to fly. It was there that she received her license from the Federation Aeronautique Internationale.
