Althea Gibson: The Pioneering Champion America Forgot


Recently a statue of Althea Gibson, the first black player to win a Grand Slam, was unveiled outside Arthur Ashe Stadium at Flushing Meadows in New York - the world's biggest tennis arena named after another pioneering African American. TREC wanted to take this opportunity to highlight Gibson and her contribution to sport and share this article looking at the life of Gibson and the lack of recognition she experienced as she was pushed to the periphery of her sport and into poverty. Her story of a Black woman excelling in her field and yet being marginalized is one that has been seen far too many times to count and though one article alone can’t encapsulate all the facets of a person its worth taking the time to read it.
