We are happy to release on amazon.com a new book by lagrant Anthony entitled, The stolen legacy of black college football.

As a former college football blue chipper from the state of Florida and a football enthusiast for more than 50 years, the author gives his perspective of college football today.   

In the book, stolen legacy of black college football, the author discusses how legal racial discrimination allowed predominately white football programs to receive top national rankings and the honor of being recognized as legitimate national champions of college football.  These self imposed national rankings and national championship games occurred without the participation of segregated historically black college football teams.   Consequently the false portrayal and propaganda of predominately white football programs as national powerhouses of college football was the only message allowed by the mass media to be disseminated to the general public. 

Did this propaganda affect the development of historically black football programs and African American football players?  What effect did the Civil Rights Act of 1964 have on historically black football programs?

 A thought provoking discussion on how legalized Jim Crow discrimination and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 gave predominately white football programs the unearned and unmerited reputation of being the best college football teams in the country is examined.
