Description

There are quite a few lines on a tennis court; sideline, baseline, service line - all of which have their functions. But beginning in 1950, a powerful and charismatic African American athlete named Althea Gibson began to smash tennis' color lines, one after another. Althea Gibson broke new ground and changed the world's perception of what was possible in the world of sports.
