Remembering aviation pioneer Bessie Coleman
from FLYING Magazine
When Bessie Coleman first took flight in 1921, at the age of 29, she not only slipped the surly bonds of Earth but those of the racial prejudice and sexism of the time. Recently, Google paid homage to Coleman, who was born on this date 125 years ago, on its homepage. The search-engine site marks important historical milestones and anniversaries each day with a new whimsical image, or Doodle, at the top of its page.
