From the workers’ sports movement in the early 20th century, to the civil rights struggle transforming sports in the 1960s, to the current global network of grassroots sports clubs, there has been a growing desire to include sport in the struggle for liberation and social justice. It is a struggle that has produced larger-than-life figures like Muhammad Ali and iconic images such as the Black Power salute by Tommie Smith at the 1968 Mexico Olympics. With the help of over a hundred full-colour illustrations, this book brings to life the history of sports activism.
