There's call for celebration over here at the Studio, ARHENETWORK.com launched at 2:05 today! Congratulations Jason & the ARHE Network, we are honored and proud to be apart of this.
On April 15, 1947 at approximately 2:05 pm opera singer Everett McCooey finished singing the national anthem. A crowd of 25,623 (mostly black) packed into Ebbets Field for Opening Day to see the Brooklyn Dodgers take on the Boston Braves. Then, Jack Roosevelt Robinson took the field as the starting first baseman and history was changed forever.
On Wednesday, April 15, 2009 at 2:05 pm history will change again. ARHE Launches. A network database that displays unbiased, accurate and up-to-date information about African Americans in the realm of sports. It has been created to instill a sense of pride and healthy admiration for the accomplishments of these individuals, and offers an arena of marketing, exposure and entrepreneurship that has never been see before in this capacity. Here, you can track your favorite athletes, coaches-even cheerleaders-getting information ranging from contracts, endorsements and business ventures. Unlike any other site, ARHE takes you into the lives of athletes, on and off the field, and allows you to browse through historical leagues such as the ABA, AFL and the Negro Leagues. You will be pleasantly overwhelmed with never-before-seen highlight footage, pictures-even those classic commercials that made you a fan in the first place. Seven years in the making, ARHE boasts an extensive African American database-dating back to the late-1700s.
