Lily as Bessie Coleman

My daughter as Bessie Coleman: Bessie Coleman was the first African American to hold an international pilot license and the first African American woman to pilot a plane in the US. Unable to become a pilot in the US, she studied French and went to Europe. When she returned to the US she became a sensation for her ability to do barrel rolls, wing walks and her loop-de-loop trick aviation.
