Relates the story of Bernie Custis, the first black quarterback to play professional football, who had to go to Canada in order to play, and describes the efforts of other black quarterbacks to play in the NFL.

Orca Book Publishers

Until a mere generation ago, black football players were largely unproven as quarterbacks since they were excluded from a position that demanded strategic thinking instead of brute force. So, talented players headed north, rising to stardom in Canada. John Danakas profiles the pioneering athletes who donned new team colors and changed their sport.

African-American football players who rose to stardom in Canada when they were denied the chance to be quarterbacks in the NFL.(RL 4.9)
