ANNIE MORGAN JUDIS
Get this: In the late 1960s, a young girl from Houston, Texas made history as the first ever African-American model to grace the cover of Playboy Magazine. By the 1970s, this same girl had transitioned to movies, gaining a modicum of fame under her screen name Jean Bell in films such as Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets among others. She dated Richard Burton between his marriages to Elizabeth Taylor, cultivated a second (or is it third?) career as an artist and illustrator.And now, at age 79, dynamo Annie Morgan Judis is at it again, kicking down new barriers as five-time Guinness World Record holder in … skipping rope.
