The New England Air Museum, Women Take Flight

March 18 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

Join us for Women’s History Month to learn about Bessie Coleman, with historian and performing artist Tammy Denease.

Coleman was the first African American woman and first Native American to hold a pilots license. You will take an international voyage that begins in the segregated south of the United States, where cotton was king and Jim Crow ruled underneath white sheets, where the color of your skin could determine whether you lived or died. Your journey ends in Paris, France, where self-determination — not skin color or gender — is what truly matters. This event is included with admission.
