Descendants of the Black Fives Era
There is a special collective of individuals whose fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, grandmothers, cousins, distant cousins, in-laws, and other relations played on the basketball teams of the Black Fives Era or made contributions to the advancement of African Americans in the game during that period as coaches, officials, promoters, journalists, and through other related roles.
These are the Descendants of the Black Fives Era.
