Black Girls Playing Volleyball?

“I had to learn to be honest with myself. I had to recognize my pain threshold. When I hit the floor,Flo Hyman I have to realize it’s not as if I broke a bone. Pushing yourself over the barrier is a habit. I know I can do it and try something else crazy. If you want to win the war, you’ve got to pay the price.”
(Flo Hyman)

Black woman and volleyball? No way! (YES WAY!)

Actually, black women (and other women of color) have had a presence in the sport for quite some time.  These women have also plowed the road, making it easier for the current generation of volleyball players in both the college and professional ranks.
