Abstract:

"Like many Canadian children, Willie O'Ree learned to play hockey on an outdoor rink. But there was something that made him stand out from other kids -- he was from one of his town's only two black families. O'Ree was determined to become a professional hockey player, and by his first NHL game, he no longer feared the colour of his skin would hold him back. Although it has been more than fifty years since O'ree broke the colour barrier in the NHL, racism on the rink is still a challenge -- one O'Ree continues to face head-on." -- cover page 4.
