It’s time to get ready for the hottest Labor Day event around—the 17th annual Black Enterprise Golf & Tennis Challenge, Sept. 2-6 at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California. But this year is going to be especially hot. Not because the West Coast will be experiencing a heatwave, but because it also happens to be Black Enterprise magazine’s 40th anniversary. So to celebrate, we invited a few friends to this year’s Challenge—friends like Ronald Isley & The Isley Brothers, El DeBarge, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E. Fresh, and MC Lyte. They’re all coming through to make this Labor Day weekend one you won’t forget. DeBarge, a pop and R&B group made up of talented siblings, got heavy airplay on the radio throughout the 80s. El DeBarge—big brother to Chico, who performed at last year’s Golf & Tennis Challenge—was the group’s lead singer. He made songs like “All This Love,” “Rhythm of the Night,” “You Wear it Well,” and “Who’s Johnny?” instantly recognizable hits.
