This book is needed to help guide the conversation around ways to address the great disparities that impact African American males in intercollegiate athletics. In particular, scholars and practitioners have grappled with issues surrounding the climate and opportunities presented to African American males as student-athletes and coaches. Yet, there has not been a single text dedicated to identifying issues pertaining to the success and pitfalls of Black males not just as student-athletes, but also as coaches, administrators, and academic support staff in intercollegiate athletics. By addressing such topics as the economic realities of athletic competition, academic achievement, mental health, job opportunities, and identity, a new discourse will emerge on the role of African American males in college sports. This work will revisit old issues and explore the new complexities surrounding Black males in the realm of athletics in higher education with the purpose of improving their plight.

Review:

Education, equity and inclusion, and other researchers from the US present 14 essays on the issues black males face as student-athletes in colleges, and as administrators and academic support staff, and recommendations and solutions to them. They explore how to counsel and advise black male high school student-athletes; recruiting techniques and the sociological, institutional, and athletic factors involved; academic support programs; the role and challenges faced by black male support staff; black male student-athletes' academic and athletic experiences at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and on predominantly white college campuses; and the differences between NCAA's principles and goals and the lived realities of these student-athletes. Other essays examine the college athlete supply chain and its impact on black males and issues involved where revenue has taken precedence over their college experiences; academic and athletic identity and the ability to transfer life skills to future occupations; the use of black masculinity in sexual violence prevention; black male faculty as mentors; the impact of athletics involvement on career development; a program to help athletes develop post-graduation career options; and legal and financial realities when transitioning in and out of professional sports. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Annotation 2015 Ringgold Inc. Portland, OR (protoview.com)
