A History of Black Professional Football Players from 1900-1946.
Acanfora, Jerry A.
The history of Black professional football is obscure, although it is known that in the early years Black and White athletes played together on basis of ability. Several Black Americans were members of early professional football teams; however, in the late 1920s, they seemed to disappear from team rosters. Each of the eighteen Black professional football players that played between 1900-1946 are identified by team, and a brief biographical sketch is presented. (CJ)
