It has been very well documented that Perry Wallace (1968-70) was the first black basketball player in the SEC. Growing up in segregated Nashville, Wallace in basketball was All-State, All-City, All-Region and a high school All-American from the 1965-66 Pearl High basketball team. In that senior year, Pearl was undefeated (31-0) winning the state championship in the first year of the integrated Tennessee high school tournament. Wallace was about to become a pioneer.
