BESSIE COLEMAN, KIDS. Went through a little tour about her at the DuSable today, which was wonderful. Bessie was a beautiful woman and a first degree Badass who, when denied piloting classes in America, learned French in months and moved to France to get a piloting license there, thank you so much. She is the one quoted as saying “I refused to take no for an answer.”
But, since I am who I am, I would not have made this post of her had I not fallen in LOVE with that picture of her in an aviation coat, lace up boots, and a uniform, standing like anyone’s business on the wheels of her plane. That outfit is amazing, her humble badassery is staggering.
