Shonda Wells lugged a barbecue pit around feeding anyone willing to pay for some old-fashioned Texas BBQ. 

This was how she wanted to make her way once her twin daughters went off to college about a decade ago.

Wells used food stamps to buy meat that would spoil because she lacked proper refrigeration and shortage. Houston-area authorities hounded her for lacking proper food distribution permits. It all became too much, and the dream was put on hold. 

“She had the spirit to do it,” her daughter Tamyra Mensah-Stock told USA TODAY Sports, “but the means to do it? It just wasn’t right.” 

Meanwhile, Mensah-Stock chased her own dream. Mensah-Stock became the first Black woman (and second American woman) to win a wrestling gold medal, winning the 68 kg category at last summer’s Tokyo Olympics
