With the success of black athletes in sports like professional football or basketball, it may seem like American sports are a pillar of racial equality. However, a closer examination of the industry and its structure suggests otherwise. This series examines the bias and discrimination against nonwhite athletes that is ensconced (yet often invisible) in American sports. Each book aims to provide multiple viewpoints about race and sports in America, allowing readers to form their own opinions on the subject. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Essential Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
