Author: Steven Travers

In the sweltering heat of September of 1970 on Legion Field, the USC Trojans and the University of
Alabama's Crimson Tide played a game that defined the emancipation of the South from its sordid history
of racial segregation. When USC's black running backSam "The Bam" Cunningham ran roughshod all
over the all-white Crimson Tide, more than a football game was won. Based on interviews with many of
the game's participants and thoroughly researched this book presents sports as a metaphor for one of the
mostprofound social changes in history.
