Lost Champions: Four Men, Two Teams, And The Breaking Of Pro Football's Color Line

Four men broke the color barrier in pro football in 1946, a year before Jackie Robinson made it to major league baseball. Yet most people know nothing about these men. 

My book covers their careers and what they faced on and off the field. It also covers the concurrent civil rights activism in the last 1940s and examines why these pioneers haven't received the attention they deserve. 

Published in 2016 by Bloomsbury USA.
