Discusses the importance of basketball to Indiana residents, examining racial and political meanings and implications of high school basketball and focusing on the situation at Crispus Attucks High School during the early- to mid-20th century (which had a significant African American population), noting how the school's success in basketball helped lower racial barriers throughout the city.
