Seba Johnson made history at the tender age of 14 as the youngest Alpine Ski Racer in Olympic History and the first Black female to ever ski in the Olympics, a title which Johnson still holds today. As an animal rights activist, and a vegan since birth, Seba protested what would have been her third Olympic Games because the host country lifted their moratorium and resumed practice of commercial hunting for minke whale.
Always compelled to speak out against various forms of oppression, Seba’s unique perspective on life solidifies her unwavering commitment to helping the lives of all human/nonhuman animals. Her history-making skis are currently on exhibit in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
