It was 1918, and World War I was raging across Europe, and Bessie Coleman, a young black woman from Texas, decided she would become a pilot.
But Bessie had two problems: She was a woman, and she was Black, and nobody in America thought a woman could fly a plane-- much less a Black woman.
"That's ridiculous," they said.
So she told 'em all to screw off, learned French, went to Paris, and did it all anyway. She came back to America as a celebrated daredevil pilot.
This color is dedicated to all the women who chart their own course despite the odds. You rock.
