Make History Now

From: $5.00

Our mission here at the Black Fives Foundation is to research, preserve, promote, and teach the pre-NBA history of African Americans in basketball while advocating for the proper recognition of its pioneers. We do this to inspire important values like leadership, integrity, character, inclusion, grit, and finding common ground.


Though not as well known as their more famous counterparts like Jesse Owens, Joe Louis, or Jackie Robinson, the players and contributors of the Black Fives Era were true pioneering sports heroes who paved the way for the amazing superstars and lucrative franchises of today.


Your generous tax-deductible donation helps us showcase this uplifting history through relevant educational storytelling. This has never been more important than right now.


Will you help us inspire those essential values? Please become a patron today. No matter what level you choose, your pledge will be valuable and make a big difference.


Thank you very much for your generosity and support!
