Black History Month

Each year, in February, we reflect on the legacy of African Americans who have dedicated their lives to advancing civil rights, equity, and economic justice.

Bessie Coleman

In this setting, the Oakland Aviation Museum, we celebrate those African Americans who have had an impact on aviation:

Bessie Coleman, an early American civil aviator who was the first African-American woman to hold a pilot license, and the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American fighter pilots and crew in the US Army Air Corp in WWII.

We also look forward to the African-Americans will have an impact on the future of aviation, our nation, and the world. General Charles Q. Brown, Jr., 21st Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is the advisor to the president on military issues, including military aviation.

Victor Glover is one of the four-member crew scheduled to man NASA's Artemis II mission that will launch in November to orbit the moon.

We celebrate the contributions we have made to our country. We recommit to making contributions to our nation, not only in the field of aviation and space, but to the broader spectrum.
