Talkin' About Bessie
( by Nikki Grimes/ illus. by E.B. Lewis, Orchard $16.95 Score: ) The story of an aviator pioneer, Elizabeth Coleman, is told by each of the many people who knew her. Their multiple voices add up to an original kind of biography that reveals the kind of determination and grit this woman needed to become the first African American femal pilot. She not only overcame her gender, she did it in the face of poverty and race in a time when others might have given up.
