Recensioner i media
"This wonderful, wide-ranging collection addresses--yet gets beyond--celebrations of individual black athletic achievement and indictments of persistent racial discrimination. Its essays meticulously examine the images and realities of black athletes and athletics, historic "firsts" and breakthroughs, the evolving color line in sports, and the centrality of athletic achievement in African-American communities. It also makes a critical contribution to our understandings of individual and collective strategies for winning civil rights in the United States and the cultural centrality of race and athletics today." -Eric Arnesen, University of Illinois at Chicago and author of "Brotherhoods of Color: Black Railroad Workers and the Struggle for Equality "Miller and Wiggins bring together a noted collection of authors. Each uses sports to document the complexities of twentieth-century race relations in the United States. The articles analyze from a range of perspectives the changing contours of the color line in sports and society at large. Anyone wishing to understand the legacy of racism in the twenty-first century should read this thoughtful and well-edited set of articles." -Jay Coakley, University of Colorado "This brilliant collection appears at a crucial moment in history as scholars, journalists, activists, and politicians grapple with the persistence of racialized thinking in American culture. This book is a must for all individual and institutional libraries. Anyone interested in a critical history of African American sport must buy this book." -S. W. Pope, De Montfort University and author of "Patriotic Games: Sporting Traditions in the American Imagination "Theeditors have done a masterful job of assembling the influential voices of the past with newer scholarship that addresses gender and class as well as racial issues. The selections elucidate the central role and meanings of sport in the struggle for emancipation. This is an engaging text and a welcome addition to the scholarly literature." -Gerald R. Gems, President, North American Society for Sport History ""Sport and the Color Line is one of the most informative, comprehensive and insightful sport history anthologies critiquing the African American sport experience at the high school, college and professional levels. Nationally acclaimed scholars such as Dr. Harry Edwards, Rob Ruck, Donald Spivey, David Wiggins, Thomas Smith, and Susan Cahn provide an in-depth analysis of the intersection of race, gender, social class, and sport during the era of Jim Crow and post desegregation of American sports." -Dana D. Brooks, West Virginia University and co-editor of "Racism In College Athletics: The African American Athlete's Experience
