In all of the stories about aviation and its history, the stories of the first African American stewardesses have been left untold and unknown. We first took to the skies when flying was glamorous and exclusive, when little girls dreamt of being stewardesses, models, or movie stars. We rubbed elbows with the elite and traveled the world when few others could. We flew as pioneers in a global society long before the time of the Internet and globalization. We also kept our heads high facing down racial prejudice and discrimination. We lived as stars of the sky. I was one of the first African American stewardesses for Delta Airlines and I worked alongside other pioneers for almost thirty-five years as co-adventures and friends. My show will introduce you to some of these pioneers and take you on our journey!
