From the Publisher:
A classic NFL/civil rights story?the showdown between the Washington Redskins and the Kennedy White House
In Showdown, sports historian Thomas G. Smith captures a striking moment, one that held sweeping implications not only for one team's racist policy but also for a sharply segregated city and for the nation as a whole. Part sports history, part civil rights story, this compelling and untold narrative serves as a powerful lens onto racism in sport, illustrating how, in microcosm, the fight to desegregate the Redskins was part of a wider struggle against racial injustice in America.
