Description


From Jackie Robinson to Venus and Serena Williams, African Americans have used sports to fight for social change. Many of them had to fight against discrimination, and their strength in the face of adversity on the field and off has inspired many people. Their stories are presented to readers through engaging main text that includes annotated quotes from historians, journalists, and the athletes themselves. Compelling photographs, sidebars, and a timeline help readers trace the struggles and successes of African Americans in sports, from the distant past to today's current debates over kneeling during the national anthem.
