          Most high school football fans may have never heard of the AIAA. The Alabama Interscholastic Athletic Association governed athletics at segregated African-American schools prior to merging with the AHSAA in 1968 forming what we now know as the Alabama High School Athletic Association.

          Most of these schools no long exist as they were merged with local schools between 1968-1970 with court ordered integration. A few survived and still play football today. Most were turned into junior high schools or shuttered.

          Blount, Carver Birmingham, Carver Montgomery, Jackson-Olin, Keith, LeFlore, R.C. Hatch, Talladega County Central, Wenonah and Williamson are the schools which were members of the AIAA and remain open.

          Some teams excelled in the AIAA. Williamson won several state championships. Tuscaloosa County Training, later known as Riverside, went 40-0-1 between 1947-1952. That is a streak that would rank highly in any league. East Highland put together a couple of amazing seasons in the late 1960s.

          There is a permanent link on the menu line above under teams for this page so it will be easy to find for future reference.

          We have put together a few lists of these schools that may assist everyone in better understanding them.
