Ms. White’s biggest claim to fame was her appearance at the 1964 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo Japan, where she, along with her teammates, Willye White, Wyomia Tyus, and Edith McGuire won the silver medal in the 4×100 relay event. Beyond the Olympics, Ms. White has excelled as an educator, a genealogist, a motivational speaker, a musician, a poet, and a jewelry maker and a source of inspiration as a breast cancer survivor. Even as Ms. White was recently diagnosed with dementia and early on-set Alzheimer’s, she has invoked the spirit of a fighter and made the necessary adjustments to ensure that she can maintain her active lifestyle. Marilyn E.P. White has proven to be a woman of many talents and a generous spirit; which we hope to demonstrate through the ages with the Marilyn E.P. White Legacy Project.
