Bessie Coleman remembered at Plumsted branch

Dr. Daisy Century portrayed aviator Bessie Coleman at a Plumsted program.

On Wednesday, February 29, the Plumsted branch hosted an American Historical Theatre presentation of Bessie Coleman. It was an outstanding one-woman show starring actor/teacher Dr. Daisy Century. Dressed in an authentic bomber’s jacket, boots, and scarf, Century performing as Bessie Coleman was a moving portrayal of the first African-American woman to become a licensed pilot and the first American to hold an international pilot’s license.
