Bessie Coleman: Inspired To Fly


This presentation uncovers and appreciates the power, ingenuity, and strength of Bessie Coleman, depicted in costume by presenter Sharon Moore. 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. This event is brought to us by the Delaware Humanities Forum.

Registration is required for the Zoom link and to participate in the Q & A. Otherwise the program will be streamed on Facebook Live.
