Casey Grant, who served 35 years with Delta Airlines, was among the first of the African-American flight attendants.  In this interview, she shares a sampling of the trials and tribulations that were endured, the trails that were blazed and the bridges that were built. She also tells us how to obtain her book "Stars in the Sky" to get the full story about these amazing flight attendants as well as other African American/Black "firsts" in aviation.

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to tell the history of the African American pioneers in aviation on your radio show. My book, Stars in the Sky tells the history of the black stewardesses as well as other pioneers in aviation. My book is available on Amazon, Kindle, Barnes & Noble.
