Historic Algonquin Tennis Club Marker Unveiling

At 6:30 PM on Thursday, August 15, a marker will be unveiled in honor of the historic Algonquin Tennis Club.

This club, which served the African American community in the early and middle 20th Century, was located roughly in the area of the current W.D. Hill Recreation Center on Fayetteville Street. The Durham Committee on Negro Affairs was founded at the Algonquin on August 15, 1935.

Following the unveiling, there will be a 7:00 PM historical program that will highlight the athletic, social, and political significance of the Algonquin.
