February is Black History month and my next interview is with the first African American commercial flight attendant.  Patricia will take us on her personal journey fighting for our civil rights in the sky.  This brave pioneer took all the airlines to court in 1956 and after four years of investigating her claims of discrimination by the airlines, she won her case in 1960 and was hired  by Capital Airlines , as the first African-American Commercial flight attendant.

Please tune in for a Black aviation history lesson  on The Fly Girl Show at 11:00 am CST  on BlogTalkRadio.com/TheFlyGirl10
