Mr. Temple and the Tigerbelles



Mr. Temple and the Tigerbelles is the story of Ed Temple –Tennessee State University’s legendary athletics coach– and the incredible group of 40 African-American athletes who broke down racial barriers at the Olympic Games during the Jim Crow era.

The Tigerbelles won 23 medals, 16 of them gold. The most famous of them, Wilma Rudolph, became –in Rome 1960– the first American to win three gold medals at the Olympic Games.
