1964 American Football League (AFL) Eastern Division All-stars
(click on photo for large view)

         Perhaps the greatest highlight of AFL All-Star Game history came not on the field of play, but in the actions of African American players, supported by their white teammates and owners, when the best players in the AFL boycotted the City of New Orleans because of the disrespect black players were given when they arrived there for the scheduled 1964 season AFL All-Star Game, scheduled for January 1965.
         The game was moved to Houston in a seminal action in the early civil rights movement in America.  It is still recognized as such, as recently as a March, 2007 article by Evan Weiner on MSNBC.  Another description of the incident is at my AFL Clippings page, and there is a 'pro football' hall of fame article HERE, as well as a 2017 on-line article by Neil Graves HERE.

         The link below will take you to a game summary, originally created by Mark Bolding.   Most of the content of this and the other AFL All-Star Game summaries was retrieved from the 'Internet Archive Wayback Machine' at, which claims copyright for the work. 
         *Other than the final score and the image of the game program, his summary of the 1964 season all-star game incorrectly gave the report of the previous year's game. 
         Bolding's original site classified the games by the calendar year they were played in.  Since they were played at the end of AFL seasons and the All-Stars involved were so chosen for their play in those seasons, I classify them by the AFL season which they represented.  Thus the AFL All-Star Game that featured stars of the 1964 season was played in January 1965.

*NOTE: The write-up from the Wayback link is in error!  It describes the 1966 All-Star game between league all-stars and the champion Buffalo Bills.  See my story at 1964 Season AFL All-Star Game
