Strong inside : the true story of how Perry Wallace broke college basketball's color line

Maraniss, Andrew, author.

New York, NY : Philomel Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House LLC, 2017.

262 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm.

In his senior year, Perry Wallace's Pearl High School basketball team won Tennessee's first racially-integrated state tournament. The world seemed to be opening up at just the right time, and when Vanderbilt University recruited Wallace to play basketball, he accepted the assignment to desegregate the Southeastern Conference. The hateful experiences he would endure on campus and in the hostile gymnasiums of the Deep South turned out to be the stuff of nightmares. Yet Wallace persisted, endured, and met this challenge head on.
