Black Aviators Recognized

In Madison Overture Center Exhibit

We have all heard of Amelia Earhart, but have you ever heard of Bessie Coleman? She, too, was a famous woman aviator who, in 1921, had to go to France to get her pilot’s certificate because she was black. Join Al Whitaker, pilot and son of a Tuskegee Airman, at his photo display and reception on Black Aviators at the Overture Center in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 6:00 pm. The movie, “The Flying Ace,” will also be shown. Thanks, Al Whitaker, for a great display about these important aviators.
