Basketball Manitoba is proud to recognize and celebrate Black History Month in Manitoba for the month of February. This important time of recognition is an opportunity to showcase the impact and achievements of individuals from the local Black community in the sport of basketball throughout history.

As part of this celebration, Basketball Manitoba will feature individuals who are members of the Manitoba Basketball Hall of Fame through regular social media posts. These individuals have made a significant impact on the sport of basketball and have left a lasting legacy.

In addition, Basketball Manitoba will highlight individuals who have been guests on the Basketball Manitoba Podcast series. These individuals have shared their experiences and insights about the sport of basketball and have offered valuable perspectives on the impact of Black individuals in the sport.

The sport of basketball has been a part of the fabric of our society for over a century. It has been a source of inspiration and motivation for many people, especially those in the Black community. From its early beginnings to the global sport it is today, basketball has provided a platform for individuals to showcase their talents and skills and to make a difference in their communities.

So this February, as we celebrate Black History Month in Manitoba, let us take a moment to recognize and celebrate the achievements of these individuals and their impact on the sport of basketball. Their contributions to the sport have made a lasting impact and have left a legacy that will continue to inspire and motivate future generations of basketball players.
