03 - Jennifer Jackson
Playmate of the Month March 1965. Jennifer Jackson (born February 6, 1945 in Chicago ) is an American model who was chosen as <i>Playboy</i> magazine's Playmate of the month for the March 1965 issue. She was the first African American Playmate of the Month and was photographed by Pompeo Posar.
Jackson's selection as a Playmate caused much controversy at the time, with Hugh Hefner and the magazine receiving a flood of letters, not all supportive, regarding the decision. Interestingly, the article that accompanied Jennifer's pictorial doesn't make any reference to her race or her "pioneering" status.
She worked as a Bunny at the Playboy Club in Chicago along with her twin sister Janis. According to <i>The Playmate Book</i>, she is now a social worker who lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband. She has three children and one grandchild.
Jennifer Jackson should not be confused with Jennifer Lyn Jackson, who was the PMOM in April 1989.
