awareness and opportunities for people with disabilities. Tracy was the first to compete in an “able
body” pageant in her wheelchair and was crowned Ms. Black California. Many were impressed that she
quickly and fully recovered from her first car accident in 1991, but it was her recuperation from her
second car accident in 1996 that has made her a symbol of persistence and courage. After her accident
over 18 years ago, 11 of those years she was confined to a wheelchair for mobility…Tracy is now
walking, with the help of a crutch!
