Summary
"Arthur Ashe was the first black man to win a Grand Slam: his victory at the US Open in 1968 was an iconic moment not only in sports history, but in American history in general. It was a sign that society was changing. This book retells and reframes the story of 1968 as a year of seismic social and political change through the lens of the American photographer John G. Zimmerman, who had the unique opportunity to follow Arthur Ashe - both on and off court - during and after his US Open final against Tom Okker. Zimmerman's pictures, many never before seen, constitute a singular portrait of a tennis champion crossing lines. This publication also includes a series of exclusive essays and interviews discussing the role and character of Arthur Ashe, the importance of 1968 and the Civil Rights Movement, and the aesthetics of sports photography. Contributors include Maurice Berger, James Blake, Philip Brookman, Grant Farred, Wesley Hogan, Walter Iooss, Simone Manuel, John McEnroe, Gaël Monfils, Tom Okker, Ishmael Reed, and David Roediger."--Back cover
