The collection of 27 compelling stories includes articles written by a stellar group of authors, scholars, historians, and journalists – some of them local – from the field of sports. With the theme of social justice and racism in America as seen through the prism of professional sports, each week concentrates on one subject/chapter from the book. Instructor, Pete Elman, utilizes a combination of lecture, slide show and interactive discussion focusing on the lives, careers and stories of those who overcame racial prejudice to succeed.
