My kids have been learning about early American aviators. One aviator that really made an impression was Bessie Coleman. She was a woman of color and determined to make a name for herself. She certainly did that! She was the first black woman to ever become a pilot. If your kids are learning about notable early American people, here is a biography of her life (courtesy of Easy Peasy All In One Homeschool–history lesson day 32). Enjoy and happy homeschooling!
