Arthur Ashe Quotes

Today In History We Honor Arthur Ashe ‘Arthur Ashe was a top ranked tennis player in the 1960s and 70s. Raised in the segregated South, he was the first African-American male tennis player to win a Grand Slam tournament. He was much more than an athlete though. His commitment to social justice, health and humanitarian issues left a mark on the world as indelible as his tennis was on the court.’ (photo: Arthur Ashe) - CARTER Magazine
