Janet Harmon Bragg was the first black female aviator to receive her commercial pilots license, but the road to that success was not easy. In this clip, Bragg describes how her efforts to earn a commercial pilots license were thwarted by a bigoted flight instructor in Alabama in 1943. This clip was taken from the Smithsonian Institution Archives Videohistory Collection, RU 9545 Black Aviators, Session 1 Tape 3 http://siarchives.si.edu/research/vid...
