Day 8: Wilma Rudolph 
Considered the fastest woman in the world in the 1960s, winning 3 olympic gold medals in 1960. She overcame infantile paralysis as a result of polio and went on to conquer the track and field world. Did I mention she was a graduate of Tennessee State University?!! #hbcu #blackwomen #blackhistorymonth
