Profiles are organized around a movement, event, or profession that has had a significant, lasting impact on American history and contemporary life.

Students can use this framework as a basis for comparisons and contrasts, which will give them a better understanding of how individuals shape, and are shaped by, the times in which they live.

The change from whites-only participation to black dominance in many sports did not come painlessly or without the remarkable perseverance of individual athletes. From the early years to the present day, an impressive array of blacks have achieved success as athletes. This book profiles more than 155 athletes. Each enlightening biographical entry concentrates on the events in that person's life related to his or her accomplishments as an athlete and includes a list of further reading on that person. An introduction, bibliography, subject indexes, general index, and 50 photographs round out the resource. Book jacket
