✨The Black Girl Magic of Dominique Dawes✨: Pioneering Black Gymnast in Olympics



Before Olympiad Gymnasts Simone Biles and Gabby Douglass there was Dominique Dawes. Dominique Dawes competed at three Olympic Games for the USA, one of only three US women to compete at three Olympics.

Dawes won four Olympic medals, with gold in the 1996 team event, team bronzes in 1992 and 2000, and individual bronze on floor in 1996. She also won four medals at the World Championships, with silvers on beam and uneven bars in 1993, team silver in 1994, and a beam bronze in 1996. Between 1991-96 Dawes won 15 US Championships, winning the all-around title in 1994. Dawes was a pioneer as the first African-American to win an individual medal in Olympic gymnastics.

After her gymnastics ended, Dawes, a native Marylander, graduated from the University of Maryland in 2002. She pursued a career in acting and modeling, appearing on Broadway in a revival of “Grease,” and in one of Prince’s music videos. From 2004-06 Dawes served as President of the Women’s Sports Federation.

Gloria Richardson was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. She was born in 1922 and grew up in Cambridge, MD. Richardson attended Howard University and earned a degree in sociology. She then worked as a civil servant during World War II. After the war, she tried to get a job as a social worker but the Maryland Department of Social Services would not hire her or any other African American social workers. Richardson helped create the Cambridge Nonviolent Action Committee in 1962. The organization fought to desegregate public institutions. Despite the name, the group refused to commit to non-violence. One protest resulted in Maryland Governor J. Millard Tawes sending in the Maryland National Guard, which remained in the city for about a year. Richardson's work influenced a rising generation of Black power leaders, including H. Rap Brown, Stokely Carmichael, and Cleveland Sellers. She was also on the program to speak at the March on Washington, but was only given the chance to say hello before the microphone was taken away.
