“The Flying Ace (1926)”
A film screening: “The Flying Ace (1926)” a silent film made in Jacksonville, FL and inspired by the life of stunt pilot Bessie Coleman. Barbara Wingo of Norman Studios will introduce the film. The film will be followed by a brief question and answer period.

Founded in 1916 as Eagle Film City and purchased by Richard E. Norman in the 1920s, Norman Studios was among the nation’s first to produce “race films” starring African American characters in positive, non-stereotypical roles. Norman’s five-building complex, now a National Historic Landmark, survives in Jacksonville’s Old Arlington neighborhood. The mission of our 501(c)3 organization is to preserve, present and promote the history of silent motion pictures and race films through the reunification and restoration of the Norman Studios complex as a museum, education, film and community center.
