Summary: "A decade-by-decade account of African-American athlete activism told through the stories of prominent athletes who fought for racial or gender equality, often at the expense of their reputation or their ability to practice their sport. From Jesse Owens's performance in the 1936 Olympics to Colin Kaepernick's controversial kneel during the national anthem, this book show that the actions of these brave men and women are living history, part of an arc of progress on civil rights that is ongoing and far from over"-- Provided by publisher.
