Black Men on the Blacktop: Basketball and the Politics of Race


Write The First Customer Review
Show Synopsis

What is it about basketball that makes it "the black man's game"? And what about pickup basketball in particular: can it tell us something about the state of blackness in the United States? Reflecting on these questions, RafikMohamed presents pickup games as a text of the political, social, and economic struggles of African American men. In the process, he tells a story about race in its peculiarly American context, and about how the politics of race-and resistance-are mediated through sports.
