Bessie Coleman dazzled crowds as an expert pilot with death-defying tricks, and paved the way for Black women to pursue their dreams without compromise. As a giant of Black history, and American history, she wasn't just the first American woman to get her pilot's license, she was the first American woman to fly in her own airshows all over the country, despite setbacks due to racism and segregation.
This quiz and podcast cover Ms. Coleman's struggles and victories as she fought to become the pilot we know and love today!

I typically listen to the podcast with my students in class, so I can pause it to answer their questions. Then I email them a link to the quiz, which they take and then submit from home, or in the computer lab later that week so I can supervise them.
