With a style of play she described as 'aggressive, dynamic, and mean' Althea brought a fierce athleticism to the women’s game. With rarely seen archival photographs and interviews with those closest to Althea, Rex Miller creates a rich portrait of the African American community of 1950‘s Harlem who saw her potential and nurtured her talent.
