page 317 - if an enormous skeletal claw were to descend from the ceiling I think I would be okay with it. First off, I’d know nothing about it until it grabbed me because of how dark it tends to be in here. Secondly, cool, ya, that makes as much sense as anything else.
“Bessie Coleman (Jan. 26, 1892 – Apr. 30, 1926) was an American civil aviator. She was the first woman of African American descent, and the first of Native American descent, to hold a pilot license. She achieved her international pilot license in 1921. Born to a family of sharecroppers in Texas, she went into the cotton fields at a young age but also studied in a small segregated school and went on to attend one term of college at Langston University.
She developed an early interest in flying, but because neither African Americans, nor women had flight school opportunities in the United States, she saved up money to go to France to become a licensed pilot. She soon became a successful air show pilot in the United States, and hoped to start a school for African American fliers. She died in a plane crash in 1926 while testing a new aircraft. Her pioneering role was an inspiration to early pilots and to the African American community.”
