Celebrating the First Black Woman Licensed Pilot in the U.S.

Willa Brown was the first African American woman in the U.S. to be a licensed pilot, earning her pilot's license in 1937. Brown was also a tireless promoter of the positive role that African Americans could play in aviation. In 1946, she also became the first African American woman to run for Congress.

We're celebrating her life as an American aviator, advocate, teacher, and civil rights activist.
