Resumen:

Bill Garrett was the first black basketball player in the prestigious Big Ten college conference. He earned his basketball reputation at Shelbyville High School in Indiana, where he was named the state's Mr. Basketball in 1947. The authors, a father-daughter team with roots in Shelbyville, split their focus between the story of an extraordinary young man and the political battle waged on his behalf by the leader of the world's largest black YMCA and Indiana University's visionary president. Indiana seemed an unlikely setting for the integration of Big Ten basketball, given its reputation as the most racist of northern states, but basketball-crazy Hoosiers rose to the occasion. Recently much attention has been directed to Texas Western's all-black 1966 NCAA champions, but before there could be five black starters, there had to be one. Garrett's story--which includes a successful career as a coach and educator before a premature death at 45 from a heart attack--adds a little-known but fascinating chapter to the story of the integration of American sports. --Wes Lukowsky.
