Black Males and Intercollegiate Athletics: An Exploration of Problems and Solutions by Robert A. Bennett III, Samuel R. Hodge, David L. Graham, and James L.  Moore III is a must-read for anyone interested in the student-athlete in general but especially for those interested in African American male student-athletes. They play for too many coaches that do not look like them and graduate at a significantly lower rate than their White teammates. This book closely examines these and other problems, but it also offers meaningful and doable solutions.

Black Males and Intercollegiate Athletics: An Exploration of Problems and Solutions marks a compelling and essential addition to the national conversation surrounding the disparities, successes, and vulnerabilities of Black males in intercollegiate athletics, as well as the students and staff that support them. Building on insights from scholars, professionals, graduate students, former athletes, athletic coaches and trainers, these authors represent a broad base of academic knowledge and practical experience across the country. Black Males and Intercollegiate Athletics: An Exploration of Problems and Solutions greatly advances our understanding about the challenges and opportunities of Black student-athletes, and, in presenting the rare truth of their experiences, this book entreats us to find real solutions to positively address the issues they face.

As the collegiate athletics landscape continues to rapidly shift, student-athlete well-being issues are finally making their way into the forefront of the discussion. From my perspective, there is no more significant issue than the African American male as student-athlete experience. The Black male student-athlete is arguably the most researched and simultaneously underserved cohort in American collegiate athletics. He has the most to gain from the college experience yet in many cases gets the least out. This assembly of writings gives both researchers and practitioners insight to the challenges and, more importantly, solutions to these complex reality constructs. If you are concerned about the Black male student-athlete experience, this edited volume should be on your desk.

The editors and contributors of Black Males and Intercollegiate Athletics: An Exploration of Problems and Solutions have provided those who wish to help and understand the African American male student-athlete with a valuable tool. Dealing with a myriad of contemporary issues, such as Black male identity, counseling and advising, and sexual violence prevention, this edited volume offers important insights and frameworks, along with recommended solutions for policy and practice. It also provides an excellent introduction for some, a supplement for others, and a reference for all who wish to work with and change the lives of African American male student-athletes.

Black Males and Intercollegiate Athletics: An Exploration of Problems and Solutions provides important insights and information for prospective Black male student-athletes, athletic administrators, teachers, school counselors, and mentors. I wish that this edited volume was available in my formative. As a former student-athlete and now commissioner of an intercollegiate athletics conference, I find that my student-athletic experiences paralleled many of the points outlined in this edited volume. The perspectives gained both on and off the field by the contributors provide a unique approach to a special population in higher education. Therefore, this edited volume should be a required text for anyone who works closely with African American student-athletes.
