Arthur Carrington:

a strata of educated black professionals dedicated to the promotion of tennis as
a social sport. He was a frequent practice partner of Arthur Ashe and assisted

a bystander, but as a participant - since the history of the ATA is enmeshed in
his own life story.
   He enjoys sharing his research and collection of archival information with those interested in learning more about
the history of Black tennis and how it influenced the futrue of Black sports.
