Elizabeth (Bessie) Coleman Upon advice from Robert Abbott (1870-1940), founder and editor of the Chicago Defender, and with financial support from him and Jesse Binga, founder and president of the Binga State Bank, Coleman eluded discrimination by registering in an aviation school located in France. She specialized in parachuting and stunt flying, and upon completion of the program of study, she received the first international pilot' s license granted to an American aviator from the Federation Aeronautique Internationale, on June 15, 1921.
