Althea film description

In the 1940s and 50s, long before Arthur Ashe or the Williams sisters, Althea Gibson was the first African-American tennis player to become World Champion. Reintroducing the pioneering athlete to a new generation, Rex Miller’s bittersweet tribute reveals how a street kid from Harlem reached the pinnacle of an unlikely sport during the height of racial segregation.
