The establishment has never taken kindly to blacks who spoke up and spoke out against injustice

The current NFL protests continue the tradition of black athletes who have fought racial injustice, says Deron Snyder ( award-winning journalist and Washington Times columnist.

His summary of “The Revolt of the Black Athlete” (1968) ( by Harry Edwards is the first in his series of black athletes who have been activists.  He plans to continue with summaries of autobiographies by Bill Russell and Curt Flood.

In his introduction, Snyder explains that Harry Edwards was the primary organizer, motivator, strategist and bankroller behind the 1968 Olympic protest made famous by the John Carlos and Tommy Smith raised black gloves. It was initially formed as an outright boycott, reports Snyder.

He details a number of accomplishments by Edwards, including his being an instrumental figure behind the San Jose State’s black students protesting racially discriminatory housing patterns in 1967. He was also organizer of the Olympic Project for Human Rights that opposed racial segregation in the U.S. and elsewhere.

According to Snyder, Edwards shows that the establishment “has never taken kindly to blacks who spoke up and spoke out against injustice,” adding, “former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is a perfect example.”

The title published by the Beckham Publications Group ( is available for preordering at 99 cents before the official publication date of July 26. Then the regular price of $2.99 begins. Their BookSquint series features short summaries of lengthy titles that reduce the reading time while at the same time motivate book lovers to grab the complete editions.

“This will be one of our most important series,” says publisher Barry Beckham, adding, “I’m delighted to expand our summary series to include black athletic protests. And the Harry Edwards title, out of print for decades until a recent memorial edition, is a worthy endeavor.”
