520    Althea Gibson was the quickest, tallest, most fearless 
       athlete in 1940s Harlem. She couldn't sit still! When she 
       put her mind to it, the fleet-of-foot girl reigned supreme
       at every sport--stickball with the boys, basketball with 
       the girls, paddle tennis with anyone who would hit with 
       her. But being the quickest, tallest, most fearless player
       in Harlem wasn't enough for Althea. She knew she could be 
       a tennis champion. Because of segregation, black people 
       weren't allowed to compete against white people in sports.
       Althea didn't care. She just wanted to play tennis against
       the best athletes in the world. And with skill and 
       determination, she did just that, eventually becoming the 
       first black person--man or woman--to win a trophy at 
       Wimbledon.
