2005 Hall of Fame Inductees
Anderson is the first Black female "Roller Derby" athlete. Although
here fete was over-shadowed by Jackie Robinson's emergence as major
league baseball's first Black player at the same time, nonetheless
she made history in the late 1950's with this distinction.
Ironically both Darlene and Jackie hailed from Pasadena. Ms.
Anderson, in an interview was called the chosen one: "I don't think
I was the chosen one, just as other blacks were removing bricks, one
by one, as Jackie Robinson and even George Copeland, who was Derby's
first black male skater, I too, was just another person, I believe,
given talent, God Given Talent, to make some type of a history mark
on America. The lack of Media coverage and Television coverage in
the late 50's was not, what it is today, so perhaps being the first
female black skater was to groom me for my life after roller derby.
But I do know, the world had their eyes on me, I was Black, and the
only Black female on the banked oval. Not because I was black, but
because I was/am Darlene, did I want to be the best on that banked
track, I skated hard to obtain the respect of every female skater,
as I respected them, that skated in Roller Derby. A professional
respects another professional, and sees no color. The Chosen One,
no, just a place God had me working at that time of my life.
