Summary
"The book details for the first time the rise of black professional basketball in America, with a particular emphasis on the New York Renaisance, a team considered by experts to be as important in the development of black basketball as the Harlem Globetrotters. Bob Kuska recounts the Renaissance's first victory over the white world-champion Original Celtics in 1925, and he evaluates the significance of this win in advancing equality in American sports. By the late 1920s, the Renaissance became one of the sport's top draws in white and black America alike, setting the stage for the team's undisputed world championship in 1939."--BOOK JACKET
