3 reasons Mo’Ne Davis’ ‘Sports Illustrated’ cover is an ever bigger deal that you realize 

1. When there’s a woman on the cover, she’s almost always with a man — or in a swimsuit.
When a woman is featured on the SI cover, she’s most often either in a swimsuit or accompanied by a man — like UConn’s Diana Taurasi with Emeka Okafor in 2003 or UNC’s Rashanda McCants with Tyler Hansbrough in 2008. Covers featuring actual female athletes by themselves are exceedingly rare, with only the U.S. gymnastics team (i2012) and Hope Solo (20011) getting the call in recent years.

RIP, Robin Williams. We are forever thankful for all that you gave to the world of performing arts. Your inspirational performances in countless films made us laugh, made us cry, and made us think. In his honor, the Library is sharing this image from the Billy Rose Theatre Collection at our Library for the Performing Arts. Rest easy, Mr. Williams.
