For Johnny Macon, a lecturer at Morgan State University, the basketball court at German Park is a special place. He grew up next to the park, helped redesign it while working with Baltimore-based Neighborhood Design Center, and is now examining the court as a case study in his 2023-24 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership project, titled “It Started in the Park: Preserving the Cultural Identity of Basketball Courts as Centers of Socialization for Historically Black Urban Communities.”
