From Jack Johnson to Lebron James
Edited by Chris Lamb
“… a thought-provoking collection of essays. Media coverage has expanded greatly since Jack Johnson put on boxing gloves to defend his heavyweight title, and a critical, sharp look at media coverage through the years is a necessary—and welcome—addition to sports literature.”—The Tampa Tribune
She Can Bring Us Home
By Diane Kiesel
“Kiesel’s reporting on and writing about Boulding will cause you to reflect about where this country has been and the directions in which it is going. Boulding is a worthy subject whose life merits a thorough telling. The author’s painstaking research and clear narrative style does her subject justice. It is an engaging and enjoyable read.”—CSPAN

By Ravi K. Perry
Winner of the Outstanding Book Award from the National Association for Ethnic Studies
