Tennis fan Touré, a Rolling Stone contributing editor and writer and the author of “Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness?: What It Means to Be Black Now,’’ was one of the VIP guests at the Sportsmen’s Tennis & Enrichment Center 2012 Gala for Kids & Community held at The Lantana in Randolph on Friday night. The special event honored tennis pro MaliVai Washington, Brigham and Women’s cardiologist Paul M. Ridker, and City Fresh Foods founder and CEO Glynn Lloyd. The event raised $150,000 for the organization, which is the first African-American nonprofit tennis club in the country.
