Feb. 15, 2018 - Dinner with a Slice of History. Don't miss the chance to meet the great-niece of Bessie Coleman and hear the story of this aviation pioneer who refused to take no for an answer! After being denied access to American flight schools because of her race and gender, Coleman traveled to France, where she became the first African-American woman to obtain a pilot's license. In honor of Black History Month, Gigi Coleman will be at IWASM to perform her one-woman show based on the life of her great-aunt. This event will inspire guests of all ages to follow their dreams. Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. with presentation to follow. To reserve your tickets, please call the office at 216.623.1111. The 2019 Dinner Series is made possible from the residents of Cuyahoga County through a grant from Cuyahoga Arts Culture.
