Charles B. Black

Not to be confused with Charlie T. Black, a player at Kansas in the 1920s.

Charles Bradford "Charlie" Black Jr. also known as Hawk (June 15, 1921 – December 22, 1992) was an American basketball player.

He played collegiately as a forward for the University of Kansas where he was a four-time first-team All-American (the only one in Jayhawk history). Black also became the first player in KU history to score 1,000 points for his career. He was a member of the Jayhawks' 1943 Big 6 conference championship team (which also featured two-time All-American guard Ray Evans, and four-time all-conference forward Otto Schnellbacher) that is regarded as one of the greatest teams in KU's basketball history.

He played for the Indianapolis Jets (1948–49), Fort Wayne Pistons (1949–50), Anderson Packers (1949–50) and Milwaukee Hawks (1950–51) in the NBA for 136 games.
