Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman (January 1892 – April 1926) was an American civil aviator. She was the first female pilot of African American descent and the first person of African American descent to ever hold an international pilot license. Way back in the day "Queen Bess" was a stunt pilot and did not live long enough to fulfill her dream of establishing a school for young black aviators. Her pioneering achievements served as an inspiration for generations of African American men and women. by kelli

CHARLOTTE FORTEN - was the first northern African-American schoolteacher to go south to teach former slaves. As a black woman, she hoped to find kinship with the freedmen, though her own education set her apart from the former slaves. She stayed on St. Helena Island for two years, then succumbed to ill health then returned north. In 1864, she published "Life on the Sea Islands" in The Atlantic Monthly, which brought the work of the Port Royal Experiment to the attention of Northern readers. by marilyn
