New Exhibit Honors African Americans in Aviation

A new exhibit honoring African Americans is headed to Bowman Field for Black History Month.

“The Sky’s the Limit: A Celebration of the History of Black Achievement in Aviation” will showcase members of the Black aviation community along with their achievements.

Officials with the Louisville Regional Airport Authority said visitors will see how men and women got their start in the field, the adversity they’ve experienced and how they achieved their greatness while rising to prominence.

Bessie Coleman, Katherine Johnson and Robert Lawrence will be featured in this exhibit.

The free exhibit will run from Feb. 1 through Feb. 28 and will be open to the public.
