About the Book

With a Foreword by Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe

Critical Praise

“No library should be without A Hard Road to Glory.” — Newsday

“The most comprehensive reference source on African-American athletes yet compiled.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“The work is a treasure—long overdue, essential American history, a book destined to be pulled off library shelves and cherished by readers who may only faintly remember that its author once won at Wimbledon and Forest Hills.” — Christian Science Monitor

“Part history, part encyclopedia, part almanac, part ethical commentary. . . Rumors have been checked, long-forgotten facts remembered and placed in context, the great athletic achievements of African Americans fully documented.” — Contemporary Sociology

“For any reader trying to understand the relationship between sports and society and why there are so many Blacks on the field but so few coaching and in front offices and in the news media, I cannot recommend A Hard Road to Glory too highly.” — David Halberstam, New York Times
