Racism in College Athletics

Fourth Edition

Intercollegiate sport has historically been both a source of frustration and discrimination for African American athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators, as well as a place of courage and achievement for those who have been given the chance to play, coach, and administer college sports. For full equality and opportunity to be achieved for African American college student-athletes, coaches, and administrators, a number of problems must still be resolved.

In the upcoming fourth edition of Racism in College Athletics, editors Dana Brooks and Ronald Althouse, along with a collection of expert authors and scholars, add to this conversation with new and updated chapters on race, gender, identity, culture, social class, support services, and more. This revised edition explores past and current issues and predicted future directions for African American student-athletes, as well as strategies to address social injustices in college sports and student-athlete development in all phases of life, including student-athlete outcomes and career opportunities.
