American Masters: Althea

Althea Gibson, a truant from the rough streets of Harlem, emerged as a most unlikely queen of the highly segregated tennis world of the 1950s. Althea's life and achievements transcend sports. Her roots as a sharecropper's daughter, her family's migration north to Harlem in the '30s, her mentoring from Sugar Ray Robinson, David Dinkins and others, her fame that thrust her unwillingly into the glare of the early Civil Rights movement, all bring the story into a much broader realm of African American History.
