BLACK COLLEGE SPORTS HISTORY & LEGENDS

COACHES: MEN’S TRACK & FIELD

The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (the second oldest Black conference) played a major role in putting Black college track and field programs on the national scene. Tuskegee Institute records some of the earliest successes and the sport quickly spread among the other burgeoning schools the country. Since then, Black colleges have been well represented on the national and international level. Despite the mass migration of Black talent to other schools, Black college track and field programs have continued to turn out competitive teams and super competitors at the national and international levels. Some of the major contributors on this list has achieved the same acclaim and are members of several Halls of Fame.
