HISTORY IN THE MAKING
We are happy to announce that one of our members, Casey Grant, has started a campaign for February 16, 2022 to be honored as International Black Aviation Day. Her Goal is to have her book Stars and Beyond - Stories of Black Heroes in Aviation available for students' use as a resource for Black Aviation History.
International Black Aviation Day (IBAD) February 16, 2023
BFOA, Inc would like to encourage all flight attendants, to get involved and spread the word about International Black Aviation Day on your social media and with your family, friends and schools. We encourage you to also take it a step further and contact your local Black museum to support Black aviation history and specifically the Black flight attendants history and our contribution to aviation. We would like to schedule a traveling exhibit and lecture to the Black museums throughout the country once the pandemic has eased up.
