Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a classic and hopefully current readers will be treated to it being re-published. Many forget, especially as March Madness is currently going on and there is much attention on the NCAA dealing with student athletes regarding the billions they are providing Universities.

The book is outstanding and helps you understand how major universities treated "black" athletes prior to the '70's. It deals with a revolution that many in the mainstream tried to dismiss and the climax came during the 1968 Olympic Games, and the iconic sketch of Tommy Smith and John Carlos give voice to athletes across the world to use their only voice in bringing justice.....Their athletic ability.

The book should be a MUST READ for Students Athletes, Parents, Coaches, Administrators and anyone associated with social justice.

Why: The Biography of John Carlos With Cd Jackson, Jr.
