I could not find the first African American man to actually run track But I did find the first African American woman to make the USA Olympic team. Their names are Louise Stokes and Tydia Pickett. Stokes finished third in the 100 meter dash at the US Olympic trials in 1932 and was named to the squad as a member of the 4x100 meter relay team. According to what I read, she was replaced at the games and did not actually compete. I couldn't find any information about Tydia Pickett other than she and Louise Stokes made the 1932 US Olympic Team. The first African American woman to win a medal at the Olympics was Audrey Patterson who won bronze in the 200 meter dash at the 1948 Games in London. Alice Coachman was the first African American woman to win gold when she won the high jump event at the 1948 Games.

A reliable way to convert a hand-held 100-yard time to an electronic 100-meter time is to multiply the hh-time by 1.103. Therefore, 10.2 in the 100-yard dash time equates to an 11.25 100-meter dash time. Also, to convert an electronic 100-yard dash time to an electronic 100-meter dash time, multiply the first time by 1.088. For example, a 10.20 electronic 100-yard time equates to an 11.10 electronic 100-meter dash time.
