The Ashe '68 Documentary Project
Ashe ’68 is a unique multi-component documentary project. It celebrates the life and legacy of Arthur Ashe, the groundbreaking tennis champion and civil rights activist, during the 50th anniversary year of his historic 1968 US Open championship victory, the year that marked his emergence as a civil rights figure. The film, VR experience, and photo exhibit focus on the origin story of Ashe’s social activism, which was launched to the world in 1968, a momentous and tumultuous time for Ashe, America and the world. Ashe became famous by breaking racial barriers in tennis and speaking out against oppression the world over. His moment resonates today as America struggles with racism, inequity and injustice.
