This book is a chronology of my life. It tells the story of a young Negro boy weaving his way through a hostile, alien world, almost alone. Mama went to one of my football games at U.C. Berkeley. She didn't know anything about football, but she knew her son was on the field, and she knew he was in college. Her support through the years helped me navigate the difficult times I grew up in. This book will take you on a journey through those years, spiced with details about the worlds of college and professional football, and of track and field, as well as original reports of the events happening in the wider world.I will never forget Howard and Dave discussing the grades they got on a quiz in one of their pre-med classes. ... that if you didna#39;t score in the 90s on a quiz you would be in danger of getting a C. Dave was brilliant but different. ... I know that Jacobs is doing excellently in his studies, and hope that he does as well in football.
