It is reported, Russell Westbrook together with the Zero World Media banner will release the documentary about the Afro-American basketball players.
The film by Marco Williams will feature the period starting from 1904 to 1950. The aim of the project is to capture the stories of how the Black Fives Era players paved their way from the very beginning to the global attraction.
Before the NBA appeared, a lot of Black basketball teams began forming and playing together in different places as they were forbidden to attend white-only gyms and sports clubs. Among these locations were dance and music ballrooms.
Westbrook is excited to partner with Propagate and The Black Fives Foundation because this subject is very personal and close to his heart.
