From WWI pioneer Eugene Bullard to stunt aviator Bessie Coleman, to astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, and more! June 11 2008
By Marynna L. Lindsey-Kerce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Don't miss it!

A collector's item, a treat for the history buff. Jim Haskins' little known gem traces the history of aviation and the contributions of many African Americans to aviation and aerospace, from pioneer Eugene Bullard, from 1920s stunt aviator Bessie Coleman, to modern astronauts such as Dr. Mae Jemison.

Includes many photographs of superstars such as pioneers Eugene Bullard and Hubert Julian, daredevil stunt pilot Bessie Coleman, the Tuskegee Airmen, Willa Brown, Janet Waterford-Bragg, transcontinental aviators C. Albert Anderson and Dr. Albert E. Forsythe, General Benjamin O. Davis and son, space shuttle astronauts Guion Bluford, Ronald McNair, Frederick Gregory, Charles Bolden, Mae Jemison, and many other aviators, developers, flight instructors, and financiers, too many to list here.

Black Eagles offers a fascinating history of aviation, from the perspective of the African-American experience.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in US history, African-American history, and the history of aviation.

This was a great book to inpire African American's as well as anyone who wants to serve in one of the branches of military when they are old enough. It was more advanced reading than expected, but has wonderful portrayals of our countires African-American heros.

Black Eagles Feb. 20 2011
By Mary E. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Black Eagles is a compilation of African American achievements in aviation and the space race. It discuses numerous aviators and outlines in detail their accomplishments. The book covers individuals from Eugene Bullard, who served in the French flying corps in WWI to Ronald McNair, who perished in the Challenger space shuttle disaster. Although I found the book interesting, it is a bit dry and factual. I don't know if a child would absorb all of the information and enjoy the book.
