Aroview: PBS documentary account of the story of Althea Gibson, a truant from the tough streets of Harlem, who overcame extraordinary odds to becomes the queen of the highly segregated tennis world of the 1950's.
The first African-American to play and win at Wimbledon and Forest Hills was then shunned by the tennis establishment, before her fame thrust her unwillingly into the glare of the early Civil Rights movement.
4 stars (Very Good) It is a story that should move most viewers. What a remarkable athlete and what a voyage. Some excellent interviewees especially Angela Buxton who came to Althea's rescue when she was in the pits of despair.~tubbs
