The Kewanee Black Knights, formed in the fall of 1965, was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Kewanee, Illinois. This junior corps was brought together by a few members of the senior Kewanee Black Knights, which had folded in 1965. The new group was also known as the Black Knights and The Knights Drum and Bugle Corps.
In 1971 the corps followed the majority of its membership base to Geneso, Illinois, and became the Geneseo Knights.
