Kymberly Herrin, March 1981 Playmate
Jennifer Jackson was the first Black Playboy Playmate of the Month (March 1965).
In a 2011 interview about a character loosely based on her in the show The Playboy Club she comments on her success and attention stating:
The thing about that is, I never thought I was that pretty. Chicago had a lot of beautiful women, and for me to say that I was pretty? I was just there. There were so many other girls who were so much prettier than me. It’s just that a white man’s beauty is different from a black man’s beauty. I was tall and leggy — white men like that. Black men, on the other hand, liked the girls who were short and had what they called a “brick house body.” I didn’t get any attention from the brothers. They liked the little women who were short and shapely. So there was a different standard of beauty.
She is now a social worker and lives with her husband in the Pacific Northwest.

The original Playboy Mansion was a 70-room classical French brick and limestone residence in Chicago at 1340 North State Parkway, which had been built in 1899 for Dr. George Swift Isham; it was acquired by Hefner in 1959. For a period in the 1970s, Hefner divided his time between the Chicago mansion and the Mansion West, moving full-time to the California mansion in 1974. The Chicago mansion boasted a brass plate on the door with the Latin inscription, Si Non Oscillas, Noli Tintinnare (“If you don’t swing, don’t ring”). - Via: 1 | 2
