Fearless Fly Girl
Tearing up the skies with her daredevil dives,
barnstorming Bessie Coleman flew low and zoomed high. Audiences
gasped when Bessie performed barrel rolls and the wings of her
plane touched the tips of the clouds like a bird on high. Bessie
was the first Black woman to earn a pilot’s license in America.
No flight school would accept her in the US because she was Black,
so she learned to fly in France. Bessie performed spectacular
air shows across the US and her fearless spirit and flare for
drama made her queen of the air. This sassy French trained pilot
comes ready for flight adorned with goggles, vintage scarf, map
and interchangeable heads. She has multiple joint pins, enabling
her to strike many poses from jumping into her plane to waving
to her fans.
Tick tock went the clock--- for 40 years the
clock Benjamin Banneker built kept perfect time. But time didn’t
stop this genius from becoming a famous mathematician, astronomer
and surveyor. He surveyed the city of Washington, DC with Pierre
L’Enfant, published a widely read Almanac and challenged
Thomas Jefferson on the issue of slavery. Banneker was always
studying something and never stood still. He has a flexible body
to keep up with his many jobs and carry all his tools. His telescope
lets him gaze at the cosmos. He also comes carrying his trusty
Almanac to predict the weather and other forces of nature looming
Matthew Alexander Henson
Risking his life in the coldest part of the world,
Matthew Henson was the first American to discover the North Pole,
as part of Robert Peary’s expedition. He spent his life
as a young boy traveling the world on the high seas and craved
the life of an explorer. Henson’s survival skills in the
Artic were the difference between death and the greatest discovery
of this life. For 18 years, he searched for what was his to discover.
To keep him warm in these sub-freezing temperatures, Henson is
wrapped from head to toe in fur and wears goggles to shield his
face against the snow. He also comes with snowshoes, a grappling
hook, ice axe, sextant and rope to help him blaze the trail through
ice and snow. Multiple joints give Henson flexibility to strike
any position to trek any terrain.
