The 4th event in Salesforce’s Make Change series hosted in partnership with Tribeca Film Festival and presented by AT&T celebrated storytelling as a platform for change.

The event featured actor Angela Bassett in conversation with Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts.

The two were later joined by filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein to discuss how virtual reality is helping to shape new perspectives on the world and create positive social change.

The event also featured a virtual reality screening of the short documentary film Ashe ’68, which explores and celebrates the life of groundbreaking tennis champion and civil rights activist Arthur Ashe.


The evening raised funds for the USTA Foundation’s National Junior Tennis & Learning program, founded by Arthur Ashe, Charlie Pasarell, and Sheridan Snyder and celebrating 50 years of serving under-resourced students across more than 300 chapters.
