Welcome to the definitive word on the History of Blacks in Tennis. This website will chronicle the introduction of Blacks to tennis in 1890, the creation of the governing body of Black Tennis, the American Tennis Association, which was established in 1916 and individuals of significance after civil rights legislation.  The history of Blacks in tennis is a rich and inspiring legacy that must be preserved. It chronicles the emergence of an elite black middle class a mere 40 years after slavery was abolished. This middle class spawned an organization (the American Tennis Association) in 1916 and in less than 50 years, produced 2 world champions in a sport previously unavailable to Blacks. This is one of the most remarkable feats in human history and should be illuminated as a beacon for all people to emulate.”

You will also be able to visit with the standout performers who have been inducted into the Black Tennis Hall of Fame.   You can view rare photographs, memorabilia and biographies of these individuals, including Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe.   You will learn about individuals that you never heard of, but were instrumental in the development and enhancement of Black Tennis around the world.

Why is this important?  Because, until the lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter!  African Proverb.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website

    be much more useful than ever before.
