Chris Dickerson
- Mr. America, Mr. Olympia and IFBB Hall of Fame - (born August 25, 1939 in Montgomery, Alabama), is an American bodybuilder. He was born to Mahala Ashley Dickerson as the youngest of three triplets. Dickerson studied music and is an accomplished opera singer. His bodybuilding career spanned 30 years. He was known for both his heavily muscled, symmetrical physique and his skills on the posing dais. Dickerson first entered competition in 1965 by taking third place at that year's Mr. Long Beach competition. He was not only the first African-American Mr. America, but also the oldest winner, at age 43, of the IFBB Mr. Olympia contest. Dickerson is one of the world's most titled Bodybuilders. He trained for many of his most important competitions in the
1980s with Bodybuilding great Bill Pearl. During the 1960's, Dickerson posed for many of the greatest physique photographers of the day. He worked with the pioneering photographer Bob Mizer of the Athletic Model Guild a.k.a. AMG while he was living in California during that time. Some of his 1970's work for photographer Jim French is still considered to be among the best in that photographic genre. Chris not only appeared in French's hardcover photo essay, Man (1972) but also posed for the photographer ten years later. These images by French ran in an issue of Olympus, published by Colt Studios. Dickerson acted as Master of Ceremonies at the physique competition at the Gay Games III in Vancouver in 1990. Today, Chris is retired and living in Florida.
