The Spartan Girls of Brooklyn

The Spartan Girls of Brooklyn, an early all-black female basketball team, circa 1910. 

“History was made on February 26, 1910, the date of the first recorded basketball game between two independently organized all-black women’s basketball teams, the New York Girls and the Jersey Girls. …In a clever and even scientific game, the New York Girls won 12 to 3.”

The most dominating women’s teams that emerged from those early days were the Chocolate Coeds, the Chicago Roamers, the Germantown Hornets, and the Tribune Girls.
