Photographer Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, widow of tennis icon Arthur Ashe, has compiled some of her late husband’s belongings and created an interactive exhibit that is currently housed at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, New York. The exhibit, which opened on Saturday and will last for two weeks, features quotes; paintings; photos; magazine covers; and facts about Ashe’s life, career and social activism.
