Arthur Ashe: A Hero On And Off The Court, Carlie Q. Blessing Dec 2017

Arthur Ashe: A Hero On And Off The Court, Carlie Q. Blessing

Scott T. Allison

The purpose of this chapter is to offer an analysis of the many reasons why Arthur
Ashe is one of Richmond’s greatest heroes. One definition of heroism, focusing on
the phenomenon’s subjective nature, is that “heroism is in the eye of the beholder”
(Allison & Goethals, 2011), an idea that recognizes that people have their own intuitive
beliefs about what comprises a hero. This chapter offers insights from this subjective perspective, focusing on Arthur Ashe’s courage, dignity, grace, and class.
