A chronicle of the black flying experience. Overcoming social pressure, individuals such as Bessie Coleman, Hubert Julian, and James Herman Banning achieved feats that hitherto had been the demesne of white pilots.
Description by PBS Video:
Most Americans are familiar with Orville and Wilbur Wright, Charles Lindbergh, and Amelia Earhart, but few know the stories of America's pioneering black aviators, who overcame social pressures to gain the right to fly. FLYERS IN SEARCH OF A DREAM documents the lives and adventures of early black aviators, from Bessie Coleman, first black to earn an aviator license, to James Herman Banning, first black to complete a transcontinental flight.
