Actress, producer and director Kerry Washington, 45, took to Instagram to pay homage to Olympic athlete Wilma Rudolph, The Source reports

Washington honored her legacy during Black History Month, as it also coincides with the Winter Olympics, by posting a series of pictures of Rudolph on her Instagram page. To resemble Rudolph's short coiffed hairstyle, Washington donned a short pixie wig styled by Kim Kimble. She also wore an athletic U.S.A. sweatshirt similar to Rudolph's and copied the athlete holding her gold medal around her neck.
