In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, join us as we pay tribute to trailblazing Black Americans who overcame discrimination and adversity to make significant contributions to society, including Dennie Hoggard, Jr. who (along with teammate Wallace Triplett) was the first black football player to play in the Cotton Bowl, to Julia & Raphael Coel, who helped found the Nile Swim Club, the first black-owned and operated private swim club on the East Coast, to State Representative Sarah Anderson, the first black woman to preside over the State Assembly.
