Captivating Oral and Visual History
Little Lucy | San Diego | 04/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These stories about the struggles of the the black athlete to have the opportunity to play Quarterback at the highest level are a part of history that needs to be told. The stereotypes illustrated in this DVD still exist today in the minds of many and both at the college and the NFL levels of play. The inspirational stories of how some of these men were able to overcome these stereotypes gave my son the courage to turn down offers to play football at several prestigious universities if he switched positions. Of the many schools interested in him, only three schools were willing to give him the opportunity to play Quarterback and he is at one of those schools now receiving a quality education and at the same time having the opportunity to fulfill his dream of playing Quarterback. I attribute the stories told in this DVD with opening my son's eyes and giving him the courage to go for his dream."
