No player, not even the great Arthur Ashe, overcame more obstacles to become a champion than Althea Gibson. She was a truant from the rough streets of Harlem, a sharecropper's daughter whose family migrated north in 1930. Althea was the first African-American to play at, and win, Wimbledon and the US Open. But even when she was #1 in the world she still could not afford her own apartment, and became constantly indebted to sponsors and benefactors.
