Publisher Description

As part of the acclaimed Sports Virtues series, Althea Gibson: Persistence discusses the struggles and triumphs of Althea Gibson's life. As with each story in the Sports Virtues series, this book assigns a virtue to a celebrated athlete or coach, and uses that person's story to help the reader achieve that virtue for him or herself.


What emerges after reading these stories is not only a greater understanding and appreciation of the virtues that these icons needed to get through life, but also an inspiration for the reader. Each story is followed by a small quotation from literature to amplify the meaning and application of the virtue, and each story is also followed by a series of study/review questions and other interactive activities to help the reader further understand the virtue and how to achieve it.


This book is for people of all ages, but it makes for the perfect gift from parents to children or from adult mentors to their students.
