First Other Different

I read Shonda Rhimes book The Year of Yes

In it she speaks of being a FOD.  A FOD is someone who is First Other Different.

I read about Charlayne Hunter and Hamilton E. Holmes and am just amazed that it was in 1961 that they were admitted to the University of Georgia.  Dr. Holmes also was the first African American to attend Emory's Medical School.

Then I went down the Google Rabbit Hole, and found that Ronald Yancey was the first African American man to graduate from Georgia Tech in 1965.

I could not first the First Other Differents in other categories like Asian or African American women.
