Lenny Simpson's tennis game earned him positions in several Halls of Fame. Mentored by greats such as Althea Gibson and Arthur Ashe, Simpson went from a court in Wilmington, North Carolina to courts in Forest Hills and Wimbledon. Along the way he experienced the discrimination against African-American players, and he worked to break down those barriers and put all players on the same courts around the world. Lenny Simpson is back in his hometown with "One Love Tennis", teaching tennis and life lessons to the next generation.
