Rare African American Posters
“BLACKS IN AVIATION & AEROSPACE” is a set of eight posters. Each is 17 inches x 22 inches with black and white photos and biographical text for each. Represented are pioneers in flight - Bessie Coleman and Eugene Bullard and the first Black astronauts Ronald McNair, Guion Bluford and Mae C. Jemison. Also included is Frederick Drew Gregory (the first Black astronaut to command a space shuttle), Willa Beatrice Brown ("First Lady of Aviation") and The Tuskegee Airmen (who never lost a bomber in 200 escort missions in Europe during World War II).
This historical set is now available for educators, schools, archives, libraries, organizations, collectors and those interested in a neglected aspect of African American history. These stories bring to light extraordinary accomplishments of men and women of color whose exceptional exploits are under-represented in United States achievements until now.
This is an educational tool to teach and to motivate youngsters, showing that all that they may aspire to are possible. Many schools and organizations have incorporated this set of posters into their curricula and have placed the posters on bulletin boards throughout their schools and organizations. Also, collectors and archivists have recognized the rarity and historical value of these posters.
The posters were recently uncovered in storage and have not been made available for many years until now. They were produced by specialists in African American history and culture.
The posters are being made available at a special low rate. Each set is affordably priced at only $25. All sets are in excellent condition and come in mailing tubes. Special discounts for multiple sets are available for non-profit organizations and Black History Month projects.
