The New York Times, Miami Herald and USA Today Run Stories on ERA404-designed Site
Major news and media outlets ran stories today to promote the launch of ArthurAshe.org. The official site of Arthur Ashe was designed by ERA404 and commissioned by Ashe’s widow, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe.
Family and friends of Arthur Ashe launched his official website Tuesday, marking the 14th anniversary of his death.
ArthurAshe.org will offer an array of video, audio, photographs and links related to Ashe, the first black man to win Wimbledon, U.S. Open and Australian Open titles. In 1968, he was the first black to play for the United States in Davis Cup competitions.
”The idea of this website is dedicated to providing a unique resource for the understanding and promotion of the legacy and values embodied in the life and work of Arthur Ashe as a conscience leader, humanitarian, educator and athlete,” said Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, widow of Arthur Ashe.
Ashe established foundations to help disenfranchised youth, oppose South Africa’s apartheid rule and fight AIDS, which he contracted from a blood transfusion following heart surgery.
Ashe died at 49 of AIDS-related pneumonia in New York on Feb. 6, 1993.
In 1997, the new stadium at the National Tennis Center, host of the U.S. Open, was named in his honor.
