HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) supported by the NBA at All-Star Weekend. Thank you, NBA and the Pac 12 Initiative, for supporting HBCUs and the commitment to higher education.

We recognize the important role of HBCUs in African American history and highlight the ongoing efforts to support and uplift these institutions.

The event also featured a very special reunion between NBA Hall of Fame player Julius Erving (Dr. J) and AAMSAZ founder Bob Elliott. They were once roommates, and their reunion is a reminder of the rich history of African American excellence that has been achieved through sports and education.
