Guest Column: Spotlight should shine on aviation pioneer
Gulfport native Tom Simmons has just returned from Ethiopia, where he met with leaders of that nation, including the former president, celebrating the life of Mississippi aviation pioneer John Robinson. Simmons has recently written an excellent book about his life.
I hope the planners of our new civil rights museum in Jackson are including a big exhibit on Robinson. He is a true Mississippi pioneer and should serve as an inspiration to others.
