The White Elephants were the longest lasting African-American semi-pro team in Denver from 1915-1935. The team - one of the best in Colorado - was sponsored by a businessman named A.H.W. Ross, who ran The Rossonian hotel in Denver's historically black Five Points neighborhood. The White Elephants played mainly against white teams - something very unusual elsewhere in the U.S.
