Babe Didrikson Zaharias
The Greatest Ever
Sat, April 1 @ Noon
Actress Linda Kenyon will channel the multi-talented Babe Didrikson in a performance sure to astound whether you love sports or not.
Born Mildred Ella Didrikson in Texas 1911, Babe became America's greatest female athlete. She combined raw talent, hard work, and an unquenchable thirst for winning in a world in which women were not allowed or encouraged to be athletic, competitive, ambitious or to sweat.
For us today, it is no "big deal" to have women competing in sports. Not many years ago, this was a revolutionary idea - and Babe led the revolution.
