A League of Their Own: American Indian Basketball Before Integration


Author(s):
Abstract:
For many years North Carolinians had led separate lives in public activities, public schools, and sporting events, based on whether they were white, African American, or Native American. For many Native American communities in Robeson County and elsewhere, segregation in sporting events would end in 1967. Brayboy discusses what basketball was like before integration.
