Black holes are the ultimate force in our universe. Nothing, not even light, can escape their grasp once entered. Yet finding them remains incredibly difficult, and we may be missing countless relatively small black holes in our searches. The goal of the mini-Black Hole research group of ASDRP (Aspiring Scholars Directed Research Program) is to identify some of these smaller black holes. My role in this research is to aid in the creation of Python programs to scour publicly available databases for clues (specifically ones regarding stellar radius and radial velocity) as to where these black holes may be hiding. Writing code, documenting it, and collaboration is essential in this area of research. Comfortably Confront
