Carmichael, Al
Slight scratch on front board otherwise New. Friends and fans have repeatedly asked Al 'Hoagy' Carmichael to put his life and experiences in professional football, Hollywood, and the Marines in writing. Like a lot of people during the 1930s his family struggled. That struggle only became greater when his father, the main breadwinner of the family, died when Carmichael was a teenager. From those humble beginnings, Carmichael went on to attend a prestigious private university, build successful careers in professional football and motion pictures, and provide for his family in a way his parents couldn't have dreamed. This autobiography is a nostalgic and humorous journey through Carmichael's life and two careers. This story will take readers behind the scenes during the glory years of professional football and the movie and television industry. 399pp.

Jacobson, Steve
The real and painful struggles of the black players who followed Jackie Robinson into major and minor league baseball from 1947 through 1968 are chronicled in this compelling volume. Players share their personal and often heart-wrenching stories of intense racism, both on and off the field, mixed with a sometimes begrudged appreciation for their tremendous talents. Stories include incidents of white players who gave up promising careers in baseball because they wouldn't play with a black teammate, the Georgia law that forbade a black player from dressing in the same clubhouse as the white players, the quotas for the number of blacks on a team, and how salary negotiations without agents or free agency were akin to a plantation system for both black and white players. The 20 players profiled include Ernie Banks, Alvin Jackson, Charlie Murray, Chuck Harmon, Frank Robinson, Bob Gibson, Hank Aaron, Curt Flood, Lou Brock, and Bob Watson.
