Storyline

Before Colin Kaepernick, there was Arthur Ashe. In 1968, one of America's most tumultuous years, Ashe emerged as an elite athlete who parlayed his fame as the first black man to win the US Open tennis championship into a lifetime devoted to fighting injustice. The ASHE '68 Virtual Reality Experience brings viewers into the intimate moments right before Arthur Ashe's historic 1968 US Open win, an event that changed his life and the course of sports history forever.
