Fifty years before Colin Kaepernick, in 1968, there was Arthur Ashe, an athlete who parlayed his fame as the first black man to win the US Open tennis championship into a lifetime devoted to fighting injustice.

In Partnership with the International Tennis Hall if Fame, the Ashe '68 VR experience weaves together 360° video re-creations filmed at Forest Hills, the site of the 1968 US Open, archival material from the period, and evocative, never-before-seen 360° and animation to tell the story.

From the internal pressures he felt during the tumultuous cultural shift of '68 to walking down the halls of the all-white West Side Tennis Club, to his historic pre-match press conference and his winning match point, the viewer is right there, immersed in Arthur’s historic, transformative day. You are with Arthur Ashe as he becomes a tennis champion and a champion for social justice on the world stage.
