He was later invited back to South African as a member of the 31 person US African American delegation to help South African integrate their society. (thank you Wikipedia for that detail.)
Arthur Ashe contracted AIDS during a heart operation in 1985 and passed away in 1992. the Foundation - who's event we attended last night, raises money for the young men and women of the Institute to attend school and become doctors. It was a great night. Except for the tie. Gosh I hate to wear a tie.
|Jeff Williams, Katrina Adams - and my Eddie|
The young woman with Eddie in the picture above is Katrina Adams. She runs the Harlem Tennis outreach program. And, get this, she was playing at Wimbledon (on court 5) the same middle Sunday I was watching Ivan Lendel (on court 2). How cool is that!?
Jeff is a USTA Volunteer District grand-poobah (I haven't gotten all the titles right yet :-), and all around nice guy. I had a very nice time with these two - as well as the other people we hung out with.
