Prior to this year's Wimbledon, the BBC will be featuring a documentary on the tennis legend Arthur Ashe and Renaissance Foundation's young leaders have been chosen to featured in it.
Renaissance Foundation has the privilege to visit Wimbledon every year and witness of some of the worlds most intense and exciting tennis matches. Last year the young leaders learnt about Arthur Ashe, a tennis and humanitarian legend. Ashe was not only the first black person to play the Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open, but also the first one to win them. He fought for human rights and dedicated his life to educate the world on HIV and AIDS, a virus he contracted in a blood transfusion during open heart surgery. For all of this reason we consider him a role model and an inspiration like no other.
The BBC are now honouring him with a documentary which will be featured the 26th of June on BBC 2, where RF's Young Leaders will be seen talking about their experiences at Wimbledon and what this incredible figure means to them.
