Althea Gibson

in 1950, three years after Jackie Robinson made his Major League Baseball debut, Gibson became the first African-American to play in the U.S. Open.

1. She broke the color barrier at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

Althea Gibson was the first black athlete to break the color line of international tennis. In 1956, she became the first person of color to win aGrand Slam title.

The following year she won both Wimbledon and the U.S. Nationals .

Won both again in 1958,

Voted Female Athlete of the Year by the Associated Press in both years. She won a total of 11 Grand Slam tournaments, including six doubles titles, and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame and the International Women’s Sports Hall of Fame

“I have all the opportunities today because of people like Althea, Just trying to follow in her footsteps.” Venus Williams on the 50th anniversary of Gibson first title.
