Christianity, Race, and Sport

  • By Jeffrey Scholes
Product Description

This book provides a rigorously researched introduction to the relationship between Christianity, race, and sport in the United States. Christianity, Race, and Sport examines how Protestant Christianity and race have interacted, often to the detriment of Black bodies, throughout the sporting world over the last century. Important sporting figures and case studies discussed include:

  • the sanctification of baseball player Jackie Robinson;
  • the domestication of Muhammad Ali and George Foreman;
  • religious expressions of athletes in the NFL;
  • treatment of African American tennis player Serena Williams;
  • Colin Kaepernick and his prophetic voice.

This accessible and conversational book is essential reading for undergraduate students approaching religion and race or religion and sport for the first time, as well as those working within the sociology of sport, sport studies, history of sport, or philosophy of sport.
