In the sweltering heat of September of 1970 on Legion Field, the USC Trojans and the University of Alabama's Crimson Tide played a game that defined the emancipation of the South from its sordid history of racial segregation. When USC's black running back Sam "The Bam" Cunnigham ran roughshod over the all-white Crimson Tide, more than a football game was won. Based on interviews with many of the game's participants and thoroughly researched, this book presents sports as a metaphor for one of the most profound social changes in history.
