ORIGINS OF BLACK STAR

Strength in Numbers

Our club's name is inspired by a shipping company founded by Marcus Garvey. The Black Star Line was a steamship corporation established in 1919. Marcus Garvey was also the founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). He had a vision of the uniting the Black community to solve prevalent economic and social issues.

Garveyism is the idea of promoting self-help, self-determination, ambition, teamwork, equality, pride, and pioneerism.

Black Star Lacrosse Club also promotes these values to players of all backgrounds, skill levels and genders.

We offer an unique cultural experience unlike any other. Your child will have the opportunity reap the enormous benefits of a diverse environment. Playing together can solve many issues in the world but also build comprehensive understanding of differing experiences.

Black Star Lacrosse Club is about promoting the positive values of Garveyism through lacrosse and encouraging its scholar athletes to be contributing members to everchanging society.
