Last year, White, head coach of the WNBA’s Indiana Fever, came out as a lesbian in protest of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).In the coming months, White’s new role will no doubt make hers a household name in Nashville.
She was born in Jefferson City, Tennessee, United States of America and she was raised in her native land. According to her ethnicity she belongs to African American. Carolyn Peck was a sporting loving from her early age.She attended Vanderbilt University where she played basketball for her college team from 1985 to 1988.In 1988 she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication.And there is no doubt that, as she leads Vanderbilt to victory, she will also become a role model for LGBT youth in Tennessee and LGBT athletes across the country. Growing up in the rural Midwest in the 1980s, options for girls in athletics were extremely limited.This didn’t stop White—she just went toe-to-toe with the boys.
