For the month of February, Project 615 is honored to be paying tribute to Black History Month in Nashville. We pay tribute to some of Nashville’s thriving African-American communities, musicians and athletes.

Wilma Rudolph. Born and raised in Clarksville, Tennessee. Rudolph was one of the first role models for black and female athletes. who became a world-record-holding Olympic champion and international sports icon in track and field following her successes in the 1956 and 1960 Olympic Games. Known during her days as the “World’s Fastest Woman” she was a student at Tennessee State University. Rudolph is also regarded as a civil rights and women’s rights pioneer. In 1962 Rudolph retired from competition at the peak of her athletic career as the world record-holder in the 100- and 200-meter individual events and the 4 × 100-meter relay. After competing in the 1960 Summer Olympics, the 1963 graduate of Tennessee State University became an educator and coach. Rudolph and her achievements are memorialized in a variety of tributes, including a U.S. postage stamp, documentary films, and a made-for-television movie, as well as in numerous publications, especially books for young readers.

She died a sudden death of brain cancer and throat cancer in 1994.
