Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are valuable institutions that provide intellectual domains for racial uplift, racial refuge, and cultural empowerment within a continually polarized nation. Today’s current racial climate reminds us of the historical context that gave birth to HBCUs and segregated athletic experiences. While the sporting life at HBCUs is an integral part of these institutions’ mission, there is a dearth of research about HBCU athletics.

In The Athletic Experience at Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Past, Present, and Persistence, leading scholars from across the nation present a holistic examination of the integral role sports have played at HBCUs. Chapters in this volume cover a range of topics, from HBCU Football Classics to economics. It begins with a historical overview of HBCUs and the early sporting life before delving into the experiences of today’s male and female student-athletes—including the unique perspectives of athletes who transferred from historically White colleges and universities to HBCUs. Other chapters examine economic issues at HBCUs, such as the financial viability of their athletic departments in the context of the larger NCAA economic framework, and recommendations for the future of HBCU athletics to restore both academic and athletic excellence at these institutions.

An important addition to the existing literature on race in contemporary society, this volume provides a narrative of the Black experience from the historical origins of educating Blacks, their early athletic experiences, and the current state of athletics at HBCUs. The Athletic Experience at Historically Black Colleges and Universities is a significant contribution to the debate on college athletics and higher education, in general, and athletics at HBCUs, specifically. It is a must-read for sport studies scholars and students, sport management practitioners, and sport enthusiasts of the inter-workings of athletics and the HBCU experience.

Review:

[T]his book was immensely gratifying and applicable to my work and interests in sport management and sport sociology. . . .The Athletic Experience at Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Past, Present, and Persistence is wonderfully edited to illuminate the historical and contemporary experiences of HBCU athletes. (Sport in American History)

This book provides a historical overview of athletics at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and the current social educational significance of these athletic programs. It also provides a conceptual framework that contributes to the debate on college athletics and higher education, in general, and athletics at HBCUs, specifically. This book will be of interest to sport studies scholars, students, sport management practitioners, and sport enthusiasts of the inter-workings of athletics and the HBCU experience, providing them with an understanding of how HBCU athletics is situated in the local, regional, and national sport landscape.
