Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
Based on A&E's acclaimed "Biography" series, this book traces the life and tennis career of Arthur Ashe, a talented athlete and inspirational human rights activist. On and off the court, Ashe used his courage and resilience to overcome discrimination, fight prejudice, protest apartheid in South Africa, organize tennis clinics for poor children, and educate people about a variety of issues including heart disease and AIDS. His contributions to the tennis world, and the world in general, have paved the way for a new generation of African Americans. This outstanding biography accurately describes the "ups and downs" of Ashe's life and provides dozens of memorable photographs.
