Bessie Coleman

Bessie Coleman

As Bessie Coleman, Tammy takes you on a journey into the world of the First Negro Aviatrix. 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.
