Wake County library additions

I’m honored to learn from the Wake County Library Administration that upon review they’ve added two of my books to their collection. Wake County includes Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina.

THE RIGHT THING TO DO, The True Pioneers of College Football Integration in the 1960s

The book includes chapters on pivotal progressive moments in the 1960s involving the NC State, North Carolina and Wake Forest football programs. The Foreword was written by Ruffin McNeill, the former East Carolina football head coach. McNeill is now an special advisor at NC State to head coach Dave Doeren.

BUBBA’S DAD, DUFFY AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S UNDERGROUND RAILROAD, children’s book.

The book depicts Michigan State’s historic Underground Railroad. The trip weaves its way through the South during segregation to deliver players escaping Jim Crow to play for the Spartans. North Carolinians are included with Jimmy Raye in Fayetteville and McNeill in Lumberton.

My books tell the true story of college football integration in the 1960s and address the myths and fiction that allowed a false narrative surrounding the 1970 USC-Alabama game to usurp the credit from the true pioneers. As I said when I spoke at the National Sports Media Association book festival, no two books provide an accurate portrayal more than RAYE OF LIGHT and THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

I’ll put my facts up against anybody, anytime, anywhere. Watch here.
