"I’ve messed up my life and it’s too late to change that. These walks are just an escape. When I walk alone, I think about my life and the past…I am not satisfied with the way I made my life. New York has everything, but what use is that to me? I might just as well live on a deserted island. I’m restless everywhere. I always have been…if only I knew where to go."
-Greta Garbo, 1977
RIP, Alice Coachman, First Black Woman to Win an Olympic Gold Medal
(November 9, 1923-July 14, 2014)
At the 1948 Olympics in London, members of the U.S. Women’s Track and Field team went down to defeat one by one. Any hope of winning rested on Alice Coachman. Thousands of spectators stayed late for the high-jump event and witnessed history as she became the first African American woman to win an Olympic gold medal. In time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, this book follows Coachman on her journey from rural Georgia, where she overcame adversity both as a woman and as a black athlete, to her triumph in Wembly Stadium.
A biography of the first black woman to win an Olympic gold medal, from her childhood in segregated Albany, Georgia, in the 1930s, through her recognition at the 1996 Olympics as one of the hundred best athletes in Olympic history.
