Breaking The Barriers: the ATA and Black Tennis Pioneers exhibit describes the origins and history of the American Tennis Association (ATA), established in 1916 to promote the sport of tennis and to help blacks gain access to tournament tennis. Through photos, newspaper accounts and video, this exhibit discusses the many trailblazers in the fight for equality in tennis, most notably Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe.  This exhibit highlights their lives and contributions as well as the lives of other lesser known tennis heroes and local Bay Area tennis stars such as Mark Manning, Raquel Kopps, Don Johnso, Barbara Lewis and others. Co-sponsored by United States Tennis Association, Northern California chapter.
