Cheryl Wills of NY1 Remembers Arthur Ashe

NY1 anchor, Cheryl Wills, checks in with What's The 411 correspondent Andrew Rosario to reminiscence about tennis great Arthur Ashe. Cheryl Wills remembers Arthur Ashe as a New York and an international icon.

"It is so fitting that we are having this fabulous event to honor him and his legacy and all of the people who are carrying on his legacy, Wills stated."

"Arthur Ashe was about world peace. He was about advancing African-Americans and integrating us into a sports world that once wasn't so inviting to us,...everyone's heart broke when he left us, but this is a wonderful way to remember him," she continued.

The conversation took place at the Arthur Ashe Sports Ball 2012 held at Chelsea Piers to benefit the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health, which provides a three-year science enrichment program for college-bound high school students.
