Dinner with a Slice of History

Celebrate Black History Month as we host local pilot Stephanie Johnson, who became the first African-American female Captain for Delta Air Lines in September 2016. Johnson is a 1991 Kent State University graduate where she earned a bachelor's in Aerospace Technology. After graduation Johnson was hired as an Airport Operations Agent at Burke Lakefront Airport here in Cleveland, Ohio. Johnson was later hired in 1997 as Northwest Airlines' first African-American female pilot. The 2018 Dinner Series is made possible from the residents of Cuyahoga County through a grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
