 Celebrate Black History Month

 Bessie Coleman

 Sunday, February 8, 3:00 p.m.

Dressed in an authentic bomber’s jacket, boots, scarf, and performing as if standing on a wing of a plane, Dr. Daisy Century portrays Bessie Coleman, the first African-American woman to become a licensed airplane pilot. Thrill to tales of barnstorming, stunts with parachutes. “Bessie” will have a pattern for the younger audience members to create their own plane.

 Light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the program 

 

 

 

 

Celebrate Women’s History Month

Nobody Owns the Sky: Fascinating Stories of Forgotten Female Aviators

Sunday, March 22, 3:00 p.m.

Long before Amelia Earhart’s famous exploits, female flyers had already proved that aviatrixes were every bit as brave and daring as their male counterparts. Flying in flimsy wood and canvas aero planes, they awed people on the ground.  Carol Simon Levin, as Elinor Smith Sullivan, brings their stories to life.

Light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the program
