Overview

The first black tennis player to compete at elite level, Althea Gibson slammed her way through the color barrier into the world of international tennis. With a style of play she described as 'aggressive, dynamic, and mean' Althea brought a fierce athleticism to the women’s game, ushering in a new era in the sport. Her singles win at Wimbledon drew the attention of the world and a ticker-tape parade along Broadway.  With rarely seen archival photographs and interviews with those closest to Althea, Rex Miller creates a rich portrait of the African American community of 1950‘s Harlem who saw her potential and nurtured her talent.
