The St. Christopher Club was an African American basketball team that played during the early part of the Black Fives Era. 

Location: Harlem, New York City Home Court: Parish House Gym, St. Philip’s Church Nickname: “The St. C’s” Colors: Varsity Red, Black Manager: Will Anthony Madden Established: 1907 The club got its start in 1896 as a bible study group formed to help keep young African American males off the seedy streets of what is now midtown Manhattan. The St. Christopher Club is a great example of how a single idea behind a definite major purpose can transform a community and assume a life of its own once it takes hold through the implementation of specific plans.
