New Read! Real interesting facts, qoutes, & interpretations of sports, politics, & resistance in the United States. Race also played a major role in this book.

So far, reading this book I learned that the Boston Bruins intergrated before the Boston Red Sox. Being that I am from Boston this tidbit had me stunned. It goes into Boston being a racist city and a tough city for a black man to play professional sports in. We've come along way, I know racism still exists but look at the Celtics roster now compared to when the great Bill Russell played. Interesting!
