This title looks at the role race plays in the promotion and exploitation of black athletes by the NCAA. The notion of "student-athletes" is called into question, as are graduation rates and whether college athletes deserve to share in the proceeds generated by their performance. Features include a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Essential Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
