29 mins - Published Sun, May 19, 2019 by Jeff Kelley

Imaging a world in which a new technology, a new profession, was sweeping the world. A young child develops a deep desire, a passion for this profession, but he is told, from his earliest years until an adult, that the new profession wasn’t for him. He was not capable handling it for the simple reason, the color of your skin.

Today I tell the tale of Charles “Chief” Anderson, who overcame extreme racism to became one of the world most respected aviators on the 178th episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
