Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book, the first volume dedicated to the subject, Sundiata Djata explores obstacles to performance such as the discrimination that kept blacks out of pro tennis for decades. He examines the role that this white sport traditionally played in the black community. And he provides keen insights into the politics of professional sports and the challenges faced by today's black players. The work's eventual two volumes will cover identity and black tennis in aboriginal Australia, North and South Africa, the Caribbean and the Americas.
