Fireside Forum: Bessie Coleman - Inspired to Fly

Fireside Forum: Bessie Coleman - Inspired to Fly

As part of the library's celebration of African-American History Month, gather around the fireplace to hear Sharon Moore, retired educator, as she uncovers and appreciates the power, ingenuity, and strength of Bessie Coleman. The circumstances surrounding her life might suggest that obtaining basic needs would be sufficient. Yet, she exceeded acquiring the basics and forged forward as a pioneer in territory only moderately developed — aviation. She propelled beyond barriers in a male-dominated arena and became a flyer.

Space is limited and registration is required. To sign up, call the library at 302-645-2733 or stop by the Circulation Desk.
