Black History Month
In honoring Black History Month, did you know that in 1950, Althea Gibson is the first Black tennis player to compete at a U.S. National Championship. Just six years after her landmark debut, she made history again as the first Black athlete to win a tennis grand slam tournament at the1956 French Open. Throughout her tennis career, she won 11 major titles, including Wimbledon and the U.S. National in 1957 and 1958, but tennis wasn’t her only game. A golfer too, she also became the first Black American woman to compete in the LPGA in 1963.
Chinese New Year
Why do people have Lion and Dragon dances on Chinese New Year? Traditionally if anyone happened to see any of the ‘Lucky Mascots’ on New Year’s Day, they’d be very lucky for the year to come. The four ‘Lucky Mascots’ are Dragon, Phoenix, Unicorn and Dragon Turtle. They are fictional animals either living in the sea or flying in the sky. This explains why people perform Lion and Dragon dances to celebrate the New Year.
