Citizen Ashe follows legendary African American tennis player, activist, and Virginia native Arthur Ashe as he dominates in a predominantly white sport and creates a trail of activism for racial justice. Narrated by Ashe himself, the film not only gives a glimpse into Ashe’s life but also offers a sociological look into the sport of tennis and the racial trauma surrounding it. Discussion with President and CEO of United Way of Greater Charlottesville, Ravi Respeto, and Marketing Director of United Way of Greater Charlottesville, Price Thomas
