Black Fives Foundation

Black Fives Foundation

The Greenwich, Connecticut-based Black Fives Foundation has collected hundreds of artifacts from a period in sports history called the Black Fives Era.  It refers to the first half of the 20th century, in segregated America, where African Americans formed basketball leagues of their own.

WSHU's Tom Kuser speaks with founder Claude Johnson about an exhibit at the New York Historical Society in Manhattan, which features many of those artifacts.
