Another Fearless Texan

Texas has so many African American women to be proud of.  No, the young woman in the photo was not the first Black stewardess.  Guess again.

BESSIE COLEMAN, female aviation pioneer, born in Texas, was doing loops in France when my own father, who went on to be a WW2 bomber pilot, was 2 years old!  This incredible woman definitely had the “right stuff” and was fearless in pursuing her bliss. Regrettably her life was short lived, but she demonstrated for many women who would follow that there are no limits to what any woman can do.
