Citizen Ashe is the story of sports legend and social activist Arthur Ashe. Known to most by his stellar sports career – Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open winner and the first black player to be selected for the US Davis Cup Team – this film uncovers Ashe’s personal evolution; how his activism grew and embraced not only the Civil Right movement and African-Americans but all oppressed peoples throughout the world. Ashe died of AIDS-related complications in 1993 and was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom the same year.
