Talkin' About Bessie book.

Talkin' About Bessie book. Talkin’ About Bessie uses a series of interviews to tell the story of Bessie Coleman, an African-American aviatrix from the early 1900’s, when few women and fewer African American men or women flew airplanes. Each page spread contains a beautiful watercolor illustration y E. B. Lewis, and a brief interview of someone’s recollections of Bessie at various points in her life.

Reporters talk about her as a pilot, and friends and fans talk about her courage and determination. Summary: This book tells the story of Bessie Coleman, the first female licensed pilot of African descent. In a time when skin color was a huge dividing line, Coleman managed to rise above it all, literally, in a plane. Her story is fascinating, and the style Nikki Grimes uses is readable, unique, and fitting for the tale. Born in the South in 1892, she picks cotton and dreams of a better life. She knows that a good education will help her overcome obstacles and find success.
