The Other Althea
I am crazed to watch this show tonight (a preview on that link), because tennis rocks and because my college darkroom buddy, Rex Miller, produced and directed it. Althea .. Rex … PBS … there’s no way it’s not gonna be exceptional.
Here is a great NYT article on Althea and Serena.
DISCLAIMER: My knowledge of Grateful Dead music is limited. Maybe that song is about this Althea, tho it seem highly unlikely. Further, I am not implying that the Dead’s Althea is in any way more important than Althea Gibson, or in fact a real person.
