BeschreibungFew realize that some sports were integrated, or even dominated by blacks, before becoming dominated by whites, for example, horse racing, golf, hockey, and tennis. This book provides a lens through which to view the historical context and specific circumstances of African Americans' presence in various sports.
PortraitRUSSELL T. WIGGINTON is Assistant Professor of History at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, where he is also Special Assistant to the President for Community Relations.
Pressestimmen"Wigginton considers the history of African Americans in sports, focusing on those that have not sustained integration attempts: horse racing, golf, hockey, and tennis; how black athletes have been categorized as heroes or villains, specifically William Henry Lewis, Paul Robeson, and Jack Johnson; athletes and their achievements during the civil rights movement; and African American women in sports." - Reference & Research Book News
