(Part 6 in a series of posts honoring vintage all-black U.S. military basketball teams. Back to Part 5 | Skip to Part 7)

As mentioned here before, there were many organized sports team in all branches of the U.S. military during World War II.

Many of these teams were all-black, due to racial segregation guidelines that existed at the time.

And unfortunately, we know very little about some of these teams and players.  Here is another example below — an unidentified all-black W.W. II basketball team whose players are unknown to date.

There are even fewer visual clues to go on in this vintage photograph than in our previous unknown soldiers post.

If you believe you recognize any of the men or know anything about this team, please contact us. Thank you.
