Summary
"This book charts the progress of integration in basketball, from the first black professional basketball player in 1902 to the modern game played by the likes of Stephen Curry and LeBron James. These crucial steps in the history of basketball are placed within the larger context of American history, making this book an essential addition to the literature on sports and race in America"--
