"The crowd gasped as Bessie Coleman's plane buzzed right over their heads.  Bessie could do just about any trick in an airplane, no matter how daring.  But there was a time when she couldn't even take off or land.  In 1920, she couldn't find an American pilot who would teach a black woman to fly.  Bessie didn't take no for an answer.  She went to France and became the first African American woman to earn a pilot's license.  This is the inspiring story of one woman's fight for the freedom to soar through the skies."
