Iowa’s athletes have long impacted their teams, communities, and the sports they played, but African Americans did so while facing off against more than just the opposing team. They fought for the right to equal treatment on and off the field. Highlighting people such as Iowan and Olympian Thomas Hill, Drake University athlete Johnny Bright and his affect on the football helmet, and members of the Buxton Wonders, Iowa’s Negro Leagues team, this program is perfect for sports enthusiasts, history buffs, and the general public.
