Support the Bessie Coleman Story
Animated short on Bessie Coleman, first African-American female pilot
Support Sweet Blackberry as it plans to share the story of Bessie Coleman, the very first African-American female to become a pilot, in a captivating animated film!
Bessie grew up during a time where aviation schools in the United States would not let her learn to fly because she was a woman and she was Black. Without letting this prevent her from accomplishing her dream of being a pilot, Bessie taught herself French, moved to France and earned her license from the renowned Caudron Brothers School of Aviation.
With the Bessie Coleman Story, Sweet Blackberry continues its mission to not only educate children on lesser-known, black history stories but inspire them to accomplish dreams of their own!
Support Sweet Blackberry as it raises money to make The Bessie Coleman Story its fourth animated film. This film will follow three other amazing short films which focus on the tales of African Americans: ballerina Janet Collins, inventor of the stoplight, Garrett Morgan, and the man who mailed himself to freedom, Henry "Box" Brown. These films are currently available for purchase on Amazon.com or to stream via Netflix so grab some popcorn and check them out today!
