Download Blacks at the Net PDF by Sundiata Djata Full Free and published by Syracuse University Press. This book was released on 2008-05-01 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While much has been written about black triumphs in boxing, baseball, and other sports, little has been said of similar accomplishments in tennis. In this final volume of his ambitious and thorough examination of black achievement in international tennis, Djata comprehensively fills that gap. Exploring the discrimination that kept blacks out of pro tennis for decades, he examines the role that this traditionally white sport played in the black community and provides keen insights into the politics of professional sports and the challenges faced by today's black players. Drawing on original and published interviews, life writings, and newspaper articles, Djata offers an in-depth look at black participation in tennis in Europe, Africa,Australia, and the Caribbean. The author investigates how black African players broke through the color barrier of the South African apartheid, using sport to gain international sympathy in the face of oppressive discrimination. Djata’s wide-ranging history includes Aboriginal Australians and a chronicle of Yannick Noah’s racial identity in the eyes of the French and the world.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While much has been written about black triumphs in boxing, baseball, and other sports, little has been said of similar accomplishments in tennis.

Download Watching While Black PDF by Beretta E. Smith-Shomade Full Free and published by Rutgers University Press. This book was released on 2013-01-10 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Television scholarship has substantially ignored programming aimed at Black audiences despite a few sweeping histories and critiques. In this volume, the first of its kind, contributors examine the televisual diversity, complexity, and cultural imperatives manifest in programming directed at a Black and marginalized audience. Watching While Black considers its subject from an entirely new angle in an attempt to understand the lives, motivations, distinctions, kindred lines, and individuality of various Black groups and suggest what television might be like if such diversity permeated beyond specialized enclaves. It looks at the macro structures of ownership, producing, casting, and advertising that all inform production, and then delves into television programming crafted to appeal to black audiences—historic and contemporary, domestic and worldwide. Chapters rethink such historically significant programs as Roots and Black Journal, such seemingly innocuous programs as Fat Albert and bro’Town, and such contemporary and culturally complicated programs as Noah’s Arc, Treme, and The Boondocks. The book makes a case for the centrality of these programs while always recognizing the racial dynamics that continue to shape Black representation on the small screen. Painting a decidedly introspective portrait across forty years of Black television, Watching While Black sheds much-needed light on under-examined demographics, broadens common audience considerations, and gives deference to the the preferences of audiences and producers of Black-targeted programming.

The Ashgate Research Companion will appeal to policy makers and scholars of Africana Studies, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Anthropology and Politics, with interests in questions of race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, social inequalities, health and education.

One reads these haunting, strikingly original stories with pleasure and excitement, enthralled by their power, amused by their melancholy irony” (The New York Times).
