BlackPlanet employee lends a hand

Black History Month doesn’t begin until February but our own Black Planet members and staff didn’t let that stop them from taking on a tremendous task to revitalize a very important landmark in the New York community.

A historic Harlem tennis court affectionately referred to as “The Jungle” received a much-needed makeover. Over the weekend, men and women sacrificed their personal time to roll up their sleeves and do some (good) work. The court holds memories that go back as far as the 50s. It was originally named after Frederick Johnson who coached Althea Gibson, the first African-American to win tennis championships at the French & U.S. Opens, and Wimbledon.  Thanks to the help of Black Planet, the court is in perfect shape to help more individuals create lasting memories and achieve their dream.
