"We are all born equal but into inequality, someone maybe said that once or maybe never till now." 



All White Everything But Me, is a one person play inspired by the life of Althea Gibson.  In the 1950s she made history by becoming the first ever black female tennis grandslam winner, overcoming huge racial barriers, winning Wimbledon twice. Upon retiring from tennis, she then went onto to become a professional golfer and actor in Hollywood.



Who decides who is important enough to be immortalised in history?  Why is Althea Gibson part of a forgotten history?
