The first licensed African American Female pilot was named Bessie Coleman. Bessie Coleman was born in Atlanta, Texas in 1892. At the age of 23, she moved to Chicago seeking opportunity and fortune to escape her world of harsh poverty, discrimination, and segregation. Hearing stories from soldiers who flew in WWI, she was inspired to take up aviation. Unfortunately, being black and a woman it was not looking good for her.
In 1920 she decided to grab all her savings, received help from Robert Abbot, one of the first African American millionaires, and traveled to France to learn to be a pilot and study French. In June of 1921, the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale awarded her an international pilot's license. When Bessie Coleman returned to the United States, she was greeted by reporters from all over.

Max Fleischer, the cartoonist and creator of Betty Boop, introduced the character to the world in 1930, after being inspired by the jazz age flapper Esther Jones.
Esther went by the name "Baby Esther" and performed at the Cotton Club in the 1920's. Baby Esther’s trademark vocal style of using “boops” and other childlike scat sounds attracted the attention of actress Helen Kane during a performance in the late 1920s. Eventually, Helen would go on to adopt Esther's singing and performing style.
When Betty Boop was introduced to the world, Kane would try to sue Max Fleischer and Paramount Publix Corporation stating he was using her image. It was later revealed via video evidence of Baby Esther performing dated prior to Kane, that Jones was the real Betty Boop. Today Betty Boop may be a young white woman on TV, but the real Betty Boop is all #BlackGirlMagic.
