Bessie Coleman: Aviation History: Black History Month

For the last week of Black History month 2019 I want to introduce on of my heroes: Bessie Coleman.

Bessie Coleman amazes me by her sheer energy and rufusal to let ANYTHING detour her dreams, even when they do not work out, even when every odd is against her, even when her plane crashes she takes it in stride and creates a new plan. Some of you know that I am disabled. Though flight is not my dream and the racial struggles and barrier Ms. Coleman had to reckon with are not mine I can recognize an uphill battle from my wheelchair when I see it. There is so much hope and inspiration to be taken from Bessie Coleman's story. I hope you find some of her courage, optimism, and bravery for your adventures!

Tomb Thumb A History Podcast For Kids

I cheated a little bit since Tom Thumb was a member of the tour and P.T. Barnum's American Museum but was not apart of an actual circus. Please forgive I could not resist doing an episode on Charles Stratton (General Tom Thumb). If you happen to have seen The Greatest Showman (As I have a dozen times) you might remember him. While I LOVE the movie the true story of General Tom Thumb is even more fantastical. Please tune in and hear about Tom's audience with the Queen and his play battle with her spaniel.

Helen Keller, Disability Activist, Human Rights and World Traveler: A History Podcast For Kids

You might have heard her name before. I am relatively certain you have but I am guessing that you heard about her in the same way I was taught about Helen Keller, almost as an accessory to her teacher’s story. I am so excited to get to introduce all of you to a woman that until I began researching I only knew as a brave disabled woman who inspired by her willingness to learn. There is so much more!
