Reviews

Combining memoir with scholarly history, Furman presents an insightful look at school integration in order to capture the socioeconomic, political, and judicial realities that influenced the adolescent lives of this culturally diverse basketball team. It has both a sporting and human touch that informed and moved me.--Michael E. Lomax, author of Black Baseball Entrepreneurs, 1860-1901: Operating by Any Means Necessary
Furman's style is highly inviting. A fresh approach to discussions on race in America.--Derek Royal, editor of Philip Roth: New Perspectives on an American Author
