Nations first African-American flight attendant Ruth Carol Taylor made history Feb. 11th 1958. Her rode sure wasn’t easy but she was very determined to live out a dream, Bellevile School of Nursing graduate previously applied to Trans World Airline, but then later rejected for discrimination, Taylor soon after filled a complaint with the New York State Commission. Although Trans World Airline had no indication on smearing color lines, Monhawk Airlines sure did. Her attendance with Monhawk Airlines was lived short after getting married (was not allowed as an attendant there) but she did more than live out a dream, she lived out a purpose and made it possible for African-Americans to have an equal opportunity to work. In fact, 3 months after her denial with Trans World Airline, Margaret Grant was appointed a position there.
