During this last week of #BlackHistoryMonth, we’re looking back on some milestones and achievements of our Black community members. Our first spotlight is Lonnie Gibbs, a member of the first graduating class of STREETSQUASH. In 2005, Gibbs became the first Black SEA alumnus to play varsity college squash. He attended Wesleyan University, co-captained the squash team, and is now a teacher and member of StreetSquash's Board of Directors.
STREETSQUASH alumnus and former CitySquash staff member Raheem Logan recently published his very own children's book! Black Boy Fly is loosely based on Raheem's experiences and tells the story of a young Black boy navigating an unfamiliar space and looking to find his way through this new sport in his life, squash.

“I didn't do this alone,” says Raheem. “I had an amazing team. My illustrator Delvonte Smith helped bring this vision to life. We just wanted to remind our young ones that they are capable of flying into wherever their passions lie.”

Congratulations, Raheem!

Now this is truly some “street squash”. STREETSQUASH what do you think?
Not only has George ended Streetsquash Newark but he has also cut into our scholarship fund . He SIGNIFICANTLY cut our scholarship . We worked hard for 6 straight years . For nothing . He’s still withholding the amount and making the staff do his dirty work which is unfair for them. I wish he would take accountability for his actions instead of making everyone else be the bearer of bad news . DONT DELETE MY POST EITHER !
We are excited to introduce SEA's #SquashingTheCurveChallenge!! Starting today, we will be sharing a weekly challenge on social media for folks in our network to complete.

We have to give a huge shoutout to Khissaiyia who won the GU 19 division at the Darien Junior Silver Round Robin in over the weekend! ⁠

Not only did she come away with first place, but she got the victory on her birthday!⁠

She won a total of four matches, sweeping two of them. ⁠

"I didn't know how it was gonna turn out because squash can be really unpredictable," Khissaiyia said. "I didn't know if I was gonna win, but I really wanted to. I was happy."⁠

Congratulations and happy birthday to Khissaiyia!⁠
