Thought for Today:  “There will not be a magic day when we wake up and it’s now ok to express ourselves publicly. We make that day by doing things publicly until it’s simply the way things are.” -Tammy Baldwin, first openly gay U.S. senator.

 

Moments in History: Althea Gibson was an American tennis player and professional golfer, and the first Black athlete to cross the color line of international tennis. In 1956, she became the first African American to win a Grand Slam title (the French Championships). The following year she won both Wimbledon and the US Nationals (precursor of the US Open), then won both again in 1958.

Thought for Today:  I endeavor to make the most of everything. -Victoria Woodhull, first female presidential candidate, 1872

 

Moments in History: In 1977, Janet Guthrie is the first woman to drive in the Indy 500.

Guthrie was an aerospace engineer, training to be an astronaut, when she was cut from the space program because she didn’t have her PhD. She turned to car racing instead and became the first woman to qualify for the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. Mechanical difficulties forced her out of the 1977 Indy race, but the next year she finished in ninth place (with a broken wrist!). The helmet and suit that Guthrie wore in her first Indy race are on display in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.

Thought for Today: “If you can be the best, then why not try to be the best?” -- Garrett Morgan

Notes from History: Garrett Morgan, born in Kentucky on March 4, 1877, began his career as a sewing-machine mechanic. He went on to patent several inventions, including an improved sewing machine and traffic signal, a hair-straightening product, and a respiratory device that would later provide the blueprint for WWI gas masks.

Thought for Today: If you disrespect everybody that you run into, how in the world do you think everybody's supposed to respect you? Aretha Franklin

Notes from History: Despite the stories told in popular books and movies, one in four cowboys was Black. In fact, it's believed that the real “Lone Ranger” was inspired by an African American man named Bass Reeves. Reeves had been born a slave but escaped West during the Civil War where he lived in what was then known as Indian Territory. He eventually became a Deputy U.S. Marshal, was a master of disguise, an expert marksman, had a Native American companion, and rode a silver horse.
