Summary
A critical analysis of race, politics, and the history of American sports traces the origins and evolution of the black athlete, arguing that every advance by black athletes has been countered by a definite setback and that black youngsters who are brought into big-time programs are cut off from their heritage and exploited by the media, team owners, and others
