Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S.A.: Univ of Virginia Pr, 2004 208 pp with index. "Black basketball was not born on playgrounds in the 60's as the illegitimate child of a slow, flatfooted white game. It had been a planned birth a half-century earlier in New York City and Washington D,C. Black basketball is a continuum that stretches from Ed Henderson to Cumberland Posey, from Fat Jenkins to Pop Gates, from Wilt Chamberlain toJulius Erving, from Michael Jordan to Kobe Bryant. Each generation is linked not only by its athletic contributions snd its love of the game, but by the social opportunities that its premier players have helped to create for all African Americans." text is pristine, as is DJ..
