Originally published in 1999, "Black Stars of Professional Wrestling (Second Edition)" is the long-awaited story of the contributions of the Black athletes that've participated in one of America's most popular sporting events. This second edition is a revised and updated version of the popular classic. The book features nearly 200 photographs and biographies of Black pro wrestlers from the late 19th Century to today. Little known facts and rarely seen pictures tell the story of some of the most gifted but largely overlooked athletes of all time. Readers will learn about legends like Reggie Siki, Woody Strode, Luther Lindsay, Tiger Conway, Thunderbolt Patterson, Bobo Brazil, and Bearcat Wright, the first Black holder of a version of the world title. They'll even read about the stars of today like Booker T, The Rock, Shelton Benjamin, Bobby Lashley, Mark Henry, and R-Truth. Also covered in the book are Black females, midgets, and celebrity wrestlers from other sports throughout various decades. With "Black Stars of Professional Wrestling (Second Edition)", the long forgotten warriors are finally given their place of honor in sports history.
