The story of sports legend and social activist Arthur Ashe goes beyond the tennis courts of Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and the Australian Open — Ashe remains the only Black man to have won singles championships at all three. Rex Miller and Sam Pollard’s Citizen Ashe uncovers how Ashe’s activism grew in spite of a conservative sports culture and his rise to worldwide fame, embracing not only the Civil Rights movement but becoming an advocate for 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. A Magnolia Pictures release
