Make History Now

From: $5.00

Our mission with the Black Fives Foundation – a tax-exempt 501(c)3 public charity – is to demonstrate how, by overcoming the obstacles they faced, heroes of early African American basketball history contributed mightily to the liberties and rights we enjoy today, not just within the game itself, but also in society overall.


Though not as well known today as Jesse Owens, Joe Louis, or Jackie Robinson, these players were true exemplars of how sports brought people together even during tough times.


Your generous tax-deductible donation helps us light up the uplifting features of that history – such as leadership, character, inclusion, and finding common ground – to reinforce and extend those rights and liberties. This has never been more relevant.


Will you help us employ the incredible history of the Black Fives Era in basketball to inspire these essential values in moving our country forward? Your gift literally will make history now.
