Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The term Black Fives refers to all-black basketball teams that thrived in the United States between 1904, when basketball was first introduced to African Americans on a large scale organized basis, and 1950, when the National Basketball Association became racially integrated. The period is known as the "Black Fives Era" or "Early Black Basketball" or simply "Black Basketball." Early basketball teams were often called "fives" in reference to the five starting players. All-black teams were known as colored quints, colored fives, Negro fives, or black fives.show more
