"Althea Gibson's Quest for Gender and Racial Equality" Lecture

Posted by Austin on 08/26/2015

Amy E. Carreiro received a Ph.D. in History from Oklahoma State University, a M.A. in History from Providence College and, a B.A. in Humanities from Roger Williams University. In addition to her education, she will use more than twenty years of research and teaching experience in History and American Studies to develop a public lecture that will discuss matters of gender and race in American sport. The research will be based on primary and secondary sources which include contemporary interviews, newspapers, memoirs, anthologies, and monographs.

The lecture will elaborate on Althea Gibson's experience as an African American pioneer in tennis and golf. As an amateur and professional athlete, Gibson broke through barriers of race and challenged mid-twentieth century perceptions of women. Additionally, Gibson transcended class, ethnocentric, and religious issues by succeeding in national and international competitions. She also helped create opportunities for men of color in tennis and all women in sport.
