A syndicated national tournament of the Chicago area quiz bowl Know Your Heritage. This is a four part annual tournament for historically black colleges and universities with 8 colleges competing for a $10,000 scholarship, runners up receive a $5,000 scholarship. African American contestants compete in this show.

For the 2012 season, the show is now taped in the District of Columbia, and now has four solo players facing off against each other instead of two teams of four.

Starting in 2014, the program returned to taping in Chicago and the number of players was reduced to only three. It would be reduced to only two players by 2016.

After more than three years of reruns, a revival premiered exclusively on Bounce in 2020, using the same format as the 2016 season.
