Historical Dictionary of African Americans in Sport
This reference provides, in one volume, biographical entries for over 400 African American men and women involved in sports, as well as entries on tournaments, leagues, clubs, associations, and other organizations and events that have featured prominently in the history of African American sport. The entries cover all professional and amateur sports, from the well-known (and lesser known) personalities and events in baseball, basketball, football, and track and field, to less examined areas such as golf, tennis, horse and sport car racing, fencing, and many others. This focus on all sports at all levels provides a more complete picture of African American athletics than has previously been available in one volume.
