Spotlight on Debi Thomas

As part of our continued coverage of African American History Month and the Winter Olympics, and as a precursor to tonight’s medal round of women’s figure skating, we’d like to draw your attention to our current Spotlightee: Debi Thomas. Thomas won a bronze medal in the 1988 Winter Olympics, the first African American to do so, losing to German’s Katarina Witt (gold) and Canada’s Elizabeth Manley (silver). She went on to become a doctor. Read all about her in one of four biographies available in Biography Resource Center.
