    Book Description:
    African-American athletes have been excelling in track and field since the first modern Olympics. While this volume tells the story of such internationally known athletes as Carl Lewis, Jesse Owens and Wilma Rudolph, among others; it also introduces or reminds us of such steller performers as John Woodruff, Wyomia Tyus and Nell Jackson. This volume is devoted completely to the African-American’s participation in track & field. It reveals the legends and records of club and college participants, as well as coaches — including the achievements of athletes in the traditional black colleges. The text and reference materials for this book were taken from the three-volume set, A Hard Road to Glory,and combined into this single volume.
