Through his personal demeanor and lifetime accomplishments, Arthur Ashe brought "sunlight into the shadows" of the lives of black people worldwide. The first black man to win all the major tennis tournaments of the world lived by his father's maxim--for a black to succeed, he must study hard, work hard, and behave better than his counterparts. Ted Daniel's narration reflects the determination with which Ashe met the challenges of developing his tennis talent, opposing American racism and South African apartheid, and coping with family sickness and loss. David's controlled, firm voice pauses to let events impact the listener. His admiration for Ashe drives the biography and heightens anticipation for the next event in Ashe's remarkable life. A.R.
