Miss French – Coleman Class
Welcome to Coleman Class
We are named after the inspirational Bessie Coleman- the first African American and the first Native American woman pilot. Bessie's early aspirations were to become a pilot. However, no flight school in America would take her because she was both African American and a woman. Despite this, she did not give up on her dream as she moved to France where she was able to train and achieve an international pilot's license. She went on to perform many flying tricks and was given the nicknames, 'Brave Bessie' and 'Queen Bess'.
