Black Superstar: The Athlete in White America
Mackler, Bernard
Journal of Intergroup Relations, 4, 4, 39-53, Nov 75
The feats accomplished by black athletes are explained in terms of their need to prove themselves, given a society that continues to define blacks as inferior. The black person who wants to prove himself finds he can do so only if his performance is extraordinary. (Author/AM)
