Big Dreams Bloom™ features Bessie Coleman in our weekly virtual HERstory live classroom. Your little girl will truly be inspired by the accomplishments of this powerful female pioneer & leader.

“Tell them as soon as I can walk, I am going to FLY.”
– Bessie Coleman, American Aviator

Bessie Coleman was an early American civil aviator. She was the first African-American woman and first Native-American to hold a pilot’s license. She earned her pilot’s license from the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale on June 15, 1921, and was the first black person to earn an international pilot’s license.

Coleman developed an early interest in flying, but women had no flight training opportunities in the United States, so she saved and obtained sponsorships to go to France for flight school.

She then became a high-profile pilot in notoriously dangerous air shows in the United States. She was popularly known as Queen Bess and Brave Bessie.

Learning from HERstory

Through popular children’s literature focused on HERstory, we’ll explore the lives of influential women, such as Roberta Menchu as well other powerful women, from artists to activists, explorers to engineers who followed their dreams and changed the world. Together, we’ll follow up with book club style discussions and complete science, art, and maker-style STEM projects as a learning extension. Program materials and discussions are age appropriate and controversy-free, focusing solely on the success stories and achievements of great women in history.

Big Dreams Bloom™ students participate in fun and engaging at-home activities that are relevant to each week’s HERstory lesson.
