About Us

Black Heritage Review, which began as Resources 2000, has dedicated nearly two decades to researching and recording Black history, with emphasis on Black colleges. To date we have published five editions of the Black College Sports Encyclopedia. This is the first book to chronicle the statistical history of HBCU sports. The information used was taken from our sports library that consists of more than 1,000 books, media guides, and news and magazine articles. We also have more than 500 hard photos and roughly 4,000 digital photos of HBCU alumni, athletes and coaches. Using these and other resources, we hope to preserve as much of this valuable history as possible and make it available to coming generations.
