Invisible Wings is the only reference book on Blacks in aviation. More than 1,600 entries give the bibliography the scope and length that will enable scholars, researchers, and students to delve into this little studied aspect of the Black experience. This annotated bibliography includes citations on pilots, flight attendants, air traffic controllers, mechanics, doctors, engineers, scientists, astronauts, and others whose achievements in aeronautics, commerical and military, are unrecognized. The first four chapters highlight the major figures, and the next five chapters annotate books and articles on airlines, Chicago, discrimination, history, and women. The work covers three quarters of the twentieth century from 1916 to 1993, with one of the earliest articles describing the world's first Black pilot, Eugene J. Bullard, and one of the most recent covering the first African American in space, Guion S. Bluford.
