About The Project —
“It is not the honor you take with you, but the heritage you leave behind.”— Branch Rickey
The Arthur Ashe Boulevard project seeks to rename a major traffic artery running through the heart of Richmond, VA. Connecting charming, historic neighborhoods with thriving commercial and residential hotspots, the Boulevard is poised to promote new growth and opportunity for all citizens of our diverse city. Anywhere can have a boulevard; only Richmond can truly claim Arthur Ashe.
USE WHAT YOU HAVE.
DO WHAT YOU CAN.
ARTHUR ASHE —
Global citizen. Humanitarian. Richmonder.
Arthur Ashe Jr.’s exemplary life was filled with great accomplishments, fueled by a desire to transcend loss and obstruction with class and humility.
One of Richmond, Virginia’s brightest beacons, he is canonized in the world of sports and revered as an advocate for civil and human rights. The mission of the Arthur Ashe Boulevard project is to continue this recognition by renaming one of our city’s most visible travel corridors in his honor.
Challenger. Champion. Servant.
Leader. Role Model. Activist.
