Abstract:

"Reconstructing Fame: Sport, Race, and Evolving Reputations includes essays on Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Curt Flood, Paul Robeson, Jim Thorpe, Bill Russell, Tommie Smith, and John Carlos. The essayists in this volume write about twentieth-century athletes whose careers were affected by racism and whose post-career reputations have improved as society's understanding of race changed. Contributors attempt to clarify the stories of these sports stars and their places as twentieth-century icons by analyzing the various myths that surround them." "The essayists writing in this volume come from a wide range of academic disciplines, and each brings a unique perspective to the question of how social agents and institutions construct and deconstruct the narratives surrounding great sports figures."--book jacket.
