Race and Sports

With the success of black athletes in sports such as professional football or basketball, at first glance it may seem like American sports are a pillar of racial equality. However, a closer examination of the industry and its structure proves otherwise. This series examines the bias, discrimination, and inequality of all non-white athletes that are ensconced (yet often invisible) in American sports. Each book aims to provide multiple viewpoints about race and sports in America, allowing readers to form their own opinions on the subject.

“The complex interplay between race and sports is adeptly explored in this thought-provoking series. With socially conscious athletes making headlines every year, this series will provide excellent research fodder for those opinion papers. An invaluable addition to school and public libraries.” – School Library Journal
