Summary
"Through an analysis of editorial art, folktales, nicknames, "manhood" and the art of clowning, African Americans worked to dismantle Jim Crow through the creation of a cultural counter-narrative that centered on baseball and the Negro Leagues, that celebrated black achievement, that highlighted the contradictions and fallacies of white supremacy in the first half of the twentieth century"--
