Life of Bessie Coleman

February 16, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

On Tuesday, February 16, the Vineland Public Library is partnering with the Monarch Family Success Center of Vineland for a virtual presentation on the life of trailblazing aviator, Bessie Coleman. 

Dr. Daisy Century, a highly regarded historical interpreter and actress, performs a one-woman show as Bessie Coleman, the first African American woman to become a licensed airplane pilot and the first American to hold an international pilot license. 

Dr. Century engages the audience through every phase of Bessie Coleman’s life. The audience will be right there, on Zoom, to laugh, cry, sigh, and cheer as Coleman unfolds right in front of their eyes. 

This online event, which begins at 4 p.m., is open to ages eight to adult. To register, visit forms.gle/NCxkp9f1N6hUs8tz5
