June 15th Celebrated History

1877

The former slave, Henry Ossian Flipper became the first African American to graduate from West Point. He entered the U.S. Military Academy in 1873 after attending Atlanta University.

1921

Bessie Coleman became the first woman pilot of African-American and first pilot of Native-American descent. Since no flight schools in the United States would admit her, she traveled to France in 1920. There Coleman earned her pilot’s license on June 15, 1921. Once she obtained her license, Coleman turned to barnstorming to make a living. Once again, she turned to Europe to learn the skills for exhibition flying. Through the years, she earned the nickname “Queen Bess” at events for her flamboyant style. Coleman died tragically as a passenger at the age of 34 when she was thrown from a plane after the pilot lost control.

1934
