In the ring, Frank has seen it all: careers take off, careers die. He knows the hard work, determination, and dedication it takes to make it to the big-time; so when he finds out about a fixed fight, he knows he has to take action. Complicating the matter are a few wrestlers, shaming their profession by attempting to profit off the match. Unwilling to let these insults against the industry occur without a fight, Frank sets out to make the sport as honest and fair as it once was. In the world of professional wrestling, as in life itself, there are villains and there are heroes. Witness the struggle of one such hero: an ordinary man named Frank Bass. --From container

Live recording of the session presented at the 65th annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists held in Washington, D.C., Aug. 27-Sept. 2, 2001. "Birmingham, considered by many to have been America's most racially segregated city, served as a pivotal battleground of the civil rights movement. Images from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) present a view of segregated health care, while the Birmingham police records document the movement from the 1940s-1970s. Highlighting often overlooked aspects of civil rights history, Alabama archivists will describe civil rights collections and demonstrate the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute's use of technology in providing access to traditional sources"--Society of American Archivists Webpage

WWE legends : Superstar Billy Graham : tangled ropes by Billy Graham( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"I'm the man of the hour," Superstar Billy Graham told his audiences, "the man with the power. Too sweet to be sour!" Despite years of devastating health issues (a long history of drug abuse led to a liver transplant in 2002), the man regarded as one of the most influential professional wrestlers of the past thirty years still flaunts the same optimism that made his interviews as compelling as his matches. In Tangled Ropes, his autobiography, Graham remembers his victories -- and his setbacks -- on both the wrestling and the evangelism circuits in vibrant detail. At his core, Graham is still Wayne Coleman, the artistic, curious boy who escaped the wrath of his disabled father in post-war Phoenix through painting, sports, and bodybuilding. When his photo appeared in a bodybuilding magazine, the young man caught the attention of a family in Texas who began praying for his soul. Soon, Wayne found religion at a revival meeting, then mortified his parents as he left home to bend steel, rip phone books in half, and preach the Gospel on the back roads of America. Because of his natural athleticism, Wayne held a series of jobs -- from bouncer to boxer, from repo man to football player. However, it was under the training of the "Mentor of Mayhem," Stu Hart, that the wrestler was revealed. Then the fading headliner Dr. Jerry Graham bleached Wayne's hair blond and transformed him into an in-ring "brother." Still reverent of men of faith, Coleman became "Billy Graham," after the preacher. Graham completed the package with his golden tan and enormous "pythons," a succession of color-coordinated outfits and jive-talking -- a persona imitated by countless wrestlers, including Hulk Hogan and Jesse "The Body" Ventura. The Superstar's greatest wrestling achievement came in 1977, when he took the World Wide Wrestling Federation Championship from Bruno Sammartino. He held the prize for nearly a year -- the first wrestling villain to do so. But after he lost the title to wholesome Bob Backlund, Graham fell into a deep depression. He disappeared from the business, squandering his money and losing himself in a haze of drugs. In Tangled Ropes -- co-written with Keith Elliot Greenberg -- Superstar Billy Graham tells a story that transcends his life in the wrestling profession, offering candor, nostalgia, inspiration, and humor. Graham's narrative is supplemented by anecdotes from personalities like Vince McMahon, Jesse Ventura, Ivan Koloff, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
