Black History Month – Football

“You have to have the patience of understanding that at the time you will be ostracized, but as history moves into it, people will see that what you said made all the sense in the world.  As things change, the radical points of view that you had will not be radical anymore.  You have to have the courage to deal from that position.”

— Jim Brown, Black Star Rising, a documentary about blacks in the NFL in the 1950s and 1960s.
