In the 1950’s, before Serena or Venus, Althea Gibson broke the color barrier in professional tennis. She then claimed victories in the world’s most prestigious tennis championships. After many personal challenges, she put the racket down and found herself destitute.
Fortunately for Althea, her fans came to the rescue. Here is a fascinating look of how a sharecropper’s daughter became one of the most famous and trailblazing athletes of all time.
There will be an introduction, popcorn, soft drinks, and cash bar. Cost is $10 per person. Sponsored by Indiana Arts Commission, Legacy Foundation, South SHore Arts, Knight Foundation and Miller Community Fund. For more info log on to their website at www.millerbeacharts.org
